Looking Up to a Hero

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell takes in the view from the stage in front of a picture display of Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, at the RNC in Tampa.

Armstrong, who set mankind's first steps on the moon during Apollo 11, the mission that finally made extraterrestrial travel seem real and gave the U.S. a lead in the Cold War space race, died on August 25. He was 82.
