Neil Armstrong Dead

RIP Spaceman.

“A lot of people couldn’t figure out Armstrong.”

With those words Tom Wolfe introduced Neil Armstrong, the astronaut hero of his nonfiction masterpiece, “The Right Stuff.” Armstrong, of course, was a masterpiece himself: the commander of the 1969 Apollo 11 mission and the first man ever to walk on the moon. Armstrong died Saturday from complications relating to heart surgery. He was 82.
