82 years old, he apparently died today due to complications from heart surgery he had three weeks back.
R.I.P. to an amazing dude and a brave mother trucker.
Man, this is a bummer. RIP.
It reminded me of a time when onet.pl reported the death of Bob Weston from Fleetwood Mac and pasted a photo of Bob Weston of Shellac. Too bad this one came without a photo.
RIP, Neil Armstrong.
Also, NBC is run by morons:
I will never have even a thimbleful of the guts that Armstrong had. He chose to fly into space at a time when successfully launching a spacecraft was very rare. Perhaps even gutsier, he stepped out into space with no guarantee that his suit would protect him. The man performed a very dangerous mission and captured the imagination of the world in the process. He will be missed.

All my Googling an hour ago turned up references to references, but it seems official.
From CBS News:
In a statement his family said Armstrong had passed away following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures. 1
The world has lost arguably the bravest man of the last century.
