In memory of Dr. Neil Armstrong (1930-2012)

A lost of our respected Boiler, a lost of a hero for mankind.  Thanks to Purdue University News Service, Purdue University Alumni, Purdue University Libraries, Archives and Special Collections, UK Guardian,  and the Associated Press, for putting together achievements of Dr. Armstrong in our memorial page.

Dr. Armstrong, thanks for being "a white socks, pocket protector, nerdy engineer," and thanks for your "small" step for mankind.  You'll be remembered, not only by Boilers, but by all of us in our history~

Rest In Peace
