Today NASA honored Neil Armstrong at the National Cathedral, and the first man on the moon was remembered for his “Courage, Grace and Humility”.  Armstrong’s fellow Apollo 11 crewmates, Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin attended, as well as the first American to orbit the earth, John Glenn.  Fellow Apollo program astronaut and the last man to walk on the moon, Gene Cernan, paid tribute to Neil Armstrong.  Cernan’s tribute included the following:

“He knew who he was and he understood the immensity of what he had done. Yet Neil was always willing to give of himself,” said Cernan, who told of trips that he, Armstrong and Apollo 13 commander Jim Lovell made to visit troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.

“Those young men and women, who had yet to be born when Neil walked on the moon, greeted him with enthusiasm,” said Cernan. “They asked him, ‘Why are you here?’ Neil’s honest and thoughtful reply was, ‘Because you are here’.”

Comic artist Andrea Mutti recently did the Knight of the Old Republic: War mini-series and is currently doing Lost Tribe of the Sith: Spiral. For attentive fans, you may have noticed a common theme in Andrea’s work: wildlife. Every now and then a strange looking lizard or rodent will show up in a panel. There will sometimes be as many as five bizarre looking creatures in one issue. Being a fan of strange looking animals, I decided to compile a gallery of the ones we’ve seen so far.
