Sad day. He was at least alive to see Curiosity do its thing. Hope we can go back in our history and get the excitement we had in the 1960's, in regards to NASA and our universe, back.

My favorite quote about him today:

Neil Armstrong (1930-2012) was not entirely human. He was the spiritual repository of our spacefaring dreams & ambitions. In death, a little bit of us all dies with him. Farewell my friend. And now, perhaps more than ever, I bid you godspeed. -Neil deGrasse Tyson

This came to me as surprise. I knew he would be old by now, but eh. I didn't realize he was battling cancer, or is that old.
