Okay, This Has Got to be One of the Coolest Things Ever

Check this out: 

That's Sir Edmund Hillary (second from the left) and Neil Armstrong (far right) at the North Pole in 1985. The other two guys are Steve Forrest, first man to fly a balloon around the world, and Patrick Morrow, first man to climb the highest peaks on all seven continents (the Antarctica one must've been fun).

John Glenn apparently had a prior engagement, and Tenzing Norgay was laughing too hard to accept.

If you need to ask why, you missed the point, but go here for the full story.
I could say something about the greatness of the human spirit, the glory of great acheivements, and how we always need pioneers, but really I think I'd just ruin the moment. Let's just bask in the pure awesome!

Vive Christus Rex!
