August 26, 2012 - Astronaut Neil A. Armstrong, who in 1969 took a "small step" to become the first human to set foot on the moon, has died at the age of 82.

Armstrong, who described his first steps on the lunar surface as a "giant leap for all mankind," died on Saturday (Aug. 25). He had undergone coronary bypass surgery on Aug. 7, two days after his 82nd birthday. Armstrong's death was confirmed in a statement by his family.

"Neil Armstrong has passed away following complications resulting from cardiovascular procedures," his family wrote on the website "Neil was our loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend."
