Meeting Neil Armstrong
MOSINEE, Wis. (AP) – Four Wisconsinites had the opportunity to meet the first person to set foot on the moon in his last public appearance before his death. Gary and Mary Sulzer own a Mosinee company that made parts for the Discovery Channel Telescope at the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Ariz. The Sulzers, their 23-year-old son, Tim, and quality control manager Roger Molski met Neil Armstrong at a ceremony last month to dedicate a new telescope at the observatory. Molski tells the Wausau Daily Herald (http://tinyurl.com/98u9jzs ) meeting Armstrong was like meeting Christopher Columbus – he’s a pioneer. The 82-year-old Armstrong died in Cincinnati, Ohio of complications after Aug. 6 heart surgery.
