The death has been announced of foremost scientist and explorer, Neil Armstrong, three days after his 82 birthday.
According to his family members, the death must have been caused by post surgery complications as Armstrong had undergone a surgical heart operation recently. ‘While we mourn the loss of a very good man, we also celebrate his remarkable life and hope that it serves as an example to young people around the world to work hard to make their dreams come true, to be willing to explore and push the limits, and to selflessly serve a cause greater than themselves’ they said in a release made available to the press.
Armstrong is popular to have been the first man to walk in the moon in 1969. He was also a university professor and a United States Naval Aviator.
