Astronaut Neil Armstrong Dies
US astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the Moon, has died at the age of 82.

His family says he died from complications from heart surgery he had earlier this month.

He walked on the Moon on 20 July 1969, famously describing the event as "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind".

Last November Armstrong received the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest US civilian award.

He was the commander of the Apollo 11 spacecraft. He and fellow astronaut Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin spent nearly three hours walking on the moon.

on the other hand, now he can be immortalized in a brisk iced tea commercial.
