There is a kind-of-official thread at General Discussion.

"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," his family said.

"For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request. Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink."

Everyone wink at the moon tonight.

I posted here because the General Discussion thread is supposed to be about the game.

But then would we have Eve online without the bravery and frontier spirit of men like Neil Armstrong!

Neil Armstrong, one of the 20th century's greatest hero's, if not the greatest. I am not a big fan of many things American, but he is an exception to that.

A man who inspired my generation. The memory of being able to sit in front of our TV in the early hours of the morning to see his ghost like image step onto the moon is still one of the strongest from my childhood.

As I said, I'm not a fan of much from America, but in this occasion I am more then content to put aside my petty bickering and political thoughts to go out tonight, look to the moon and wink in memory of a great man
