There is too much to say, and my words too little for the passing of a man every inch a hero. Any science fiction fan should admire the first man to do what so many of us have so often dreamed, and left a footprint on a world beyond this world.
Let us keep his dream aloft. No man born after 1935 alive now on this world has set foot on any other. 43 years after he walked on the moon, we should have been erect his tomb and monument there, in the great gray silence.
