Frank Sinatra: Fly Me To The Moon



Frank Sinatra sings "Fly Me to the Moon," which was played on the Apollo 11 mission to the moon.

********************************

In Remembrance Of Neil Armstrong
American astronaut, test pilot, aerospace engineer, university professor & the first human to set foot on the moon.
Born: August 5, 1930 in Wapakoneta, Ohio
Died: August 25, 2012 in Cincinnati, Ohio

You and your heroics will be long remembered. "That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind."

The Armstrong family's statement ends with the following 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.
You can watch an excellent video clip of the Apollo 11 moon landing and Neil Armstrong's first moments on the lunar surface here; it also captures the spirit here on Earth, as a good part of the world watched this historic event: my whole family were sitting in front of our b&w TV that afternoon and evening.
