Out of this world

One of the powers that makes humans unique among species on Earth is our ability to leave it and return.
The human who epitomized that super-power was Neil Armstrong, who has died at 82.
Armstrong, commander of the Apollo 11 spacecraft, was the first man to walk on the moon.
On July 20, 1969, he told us, “That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”
When I look at the moon, I think of Neil Armstrong.
