Interesting way to go out: Neil Armstrong will receive sea burial
First man on the moon goes to sea: He was the first man on the moon, but Neil Armstrong was a Navy man first. Armstrong’s way of reflecting that may be his burial: He wanted to be buried at sea. And the Navy is quick to respect that wish. Beyond his years in the Navy, Armstrong also found himself in the middle of the ocean after his spacecraft landed — something that may take significance with the burial. ”It’s how he knew he was finished,” said Jim Lovell, a former astronaut and close friend. “It’s how he knew his work was done.” (photo via thepaigefamily on Flickr — it’s a statue of Armstrong at Purdue university)
