Neil Armstrong, the Apollo 11 astronaut who became the first human being to set foot on another world, has died. He was 82.

The family described him as a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend, and also as “a reluctant American hero who always believed he was just doing his job.”

That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind.
