ASME extends condolences for the loss of Neil Armstrong to his friends, family, and colleagues. To the world at large, he will always be known as a heroic explorer and the first man to walk on the moon. To the science community, he will be remembered as a great aerospace engineer and educator.
As fellow engineers, we hope to change the world, to inspire future generations with the spirit of exploration, and to instill the knowledge that human imagination is limitless. It is difficult to think of an individual who better accomplished these aims or who exemplified their principles than Neil Armstrong.
During this difficult time, we share the world's grief at Armstrong's passing as we celebrate his accomplishments, his character, and the dignity with which he lived his life. We will always be grateful for his contributions to engineering, his commitment to education, and his service to his country.
