To me Neil Armstrong was a total Engineer, and it's this aspect of him that I like most and hope folks will appreciate. I hope that someone will make a film about him that will celebrate the man more than just the moon landing. I really like his NASA Oral History: http://www.hq.nasa.gov/alsj/a11/ArmstrongNA_9-19-01.pdf My favorite photo of him is with the X-15: http://www.nasa.gov/images/content/246076main_E60-6286_full.jpg
