The nation bid farewell Thursday to Neil Armstrong, the first man to take a giant leap onto the moon.
Lunar pioneers plan to attend a private service in Ohio for astronaut Neil Armstrong, following an event to announce a children's health fund in his honor.
Former astronauts, political and business leaders, and family and friends gathered Friday in suburban Cincinnati at a private club for a closed service for Neil Armstrong.
Fellow space pioneers including two crewmates on the historic Apollo 11 mission mourned and celebrated Neil Armstrong as a humble hero who saw himself as a team player and never capitalized upon his celebrity as the first man to walk on the moon.
Neil Armstrong was a humble hero who saw himself as a team player and never capitalized on his celebrity as the first man to walk on the moon, mourners said Friday outside a private service attended by fellow space pioneers, including his two crewmates on the historic Apollo 11 mission.
"I'm hoping," Shane said, "to definitely contribute a lot to the next step."
Just as Armstrong was working on the lunar lander after the Kennedy speech, Shane said he is now working on drawings of a lander for Mars.
