S4M-03910: The Passing of Neil Armstrong

That the Parliament records with great sorrow the death of astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the moon; recalls his historic words uttered at the time of the moon landing, “that’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind”; respects what it considers to be the great humility and modesty of this brave pilot and self-confessed “nerdy engineer”, and remembers fondly his many visits to Scotland, his ancestral home, from his 1972 visit to accept the freedom of the Burgh of Langholm, to his final visit in 2010, a golfing trip to the Kingdom of Fife.
