Neil Armstrong, the first man to land on the moon as commander of NASA’s Apollo 11 mission, has died at 82, 25th August 2012.

Neil Armstrong, the first man to land on the moon as commander of NASA’s Apollo 11 mission, has died at 82 as on 25th August 2012.

"We are heartbroken to share the news that Neil Armstrong has passed away following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures," Neil Armstrong's family said in a statement Saturday.

Neil Armstrong underwent heart surgery this month.

"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," Neil Armstrong's family said.

Armstrong passed away due to complications of a heart bypass surgery he underwent just weeks ago. His 82nd birthday was on August 5.

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong made history by placing his left foot onto the surface of the moon and uttering the words, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” and completed arguably the greatest scientific feat of the 20th century.

Neil Armstrong was born in Wapakoneta, Ohio in 1930. He studied aerospace engineering at Purdue University both before and after serving in the Navy as a test and fighter pilot he was selected in 1958 for the U.S. Air Force’s ‘Man in Space Soonest’ program, setting him on the path that would change history.

Neil Armstrong had three children, Alan, Karen Anne (who died of a brain tumor on January 28, 1962) and Mark Stephen with his first wife Janet Shearon. In 1999, Armstrong married Carole Held Knight.

Though a household name, he was known as a man who liked to stay out of the spotlight. His public appearances were seldom and of few words. During his later life he emerged to voice his reservations about President Obama’s space policy by testifying in front of Congress.
