Neil Armstrong

Low-key, self-effacing guy, and the greatest space cowboy who ever lived (with respects to Chuck Yeager, Ed White and Gordon Cooper, Buzz Aldrin, John Glenn, Gus Grissom and Jim Lovell).
First man to set foot on the moon. "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." A real American hero! Spectacular reality! I could go on all day. Rest in peace, Neil. You were fantastic. WC1

Indeed. The man was a true pioneer displaying a level of courage and confidence that exceeds all of the pro-athletes so many folks place atop a pedestal today. Long before computers, he had but his own wits and a slide rule to guide him. There was no margin for error in the environment he found himself in.
