    Re: Neil Armstrong died today
    From: Richard B. Langley
    Date: 2012 Aug 27, 09:12 -0300

    My post-doctoral research at MIT involved using the laser
    retroreflectors left on the moon by some of the Apollo astronauts and
    placed there remotely by the Soviets. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin
    deployed the first one during the Apollo 11 mission.
