          That's beautiful.

          A fitting coincidence is that I had gotten to the end of a B5 re-watch this morning.

          Upon hearing this sad news I had to go back and replay Lorien's answer to Sheridan...

          "No. This journey is finished.
          Another begins. Time to rest now."

            A nice tribute to Neil Armstrong from the future host of Cosmos.
            Neil deGrasse Tyson spent an entire Star Talk Radio show honoring his friend and mentor...

            "In this, our first episode made up entirely of questions from our fans, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson offers his own reflections and answers your Cosmic Queries about Neil A. Armstrong, the first man to walk on the Moon. From the time he met Neil Armstrong at age 14 to the private family funeral on the day of a ôBlue Moon,ö Neil shares his own personal memories of the humble, private NASA astronaut who took us all with him to the Moon."
