The news of the iconic astronaut Neil Armstrong's death this weekend plunged American astronauts and spaceflyers around the world into mourning, with some expressing their sadness on Twitter.

Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon and commander of NASA's Apollo 11 lunar landing mission,  died at age 82 sue to complications from recent heart surgery, his family said. Armstrong had heart bypass surgery earlier this month to clear blocked arteries.

Many astronauts with NASA and other space agencies cited Armstrong as a major inspiration in their lives in their Twitter messages. Others reflected on the legendary astronaut's modesty, despite his global fame.

"I am deeply saddened by the passing of Neil Armstrong," wrote former astronaut Leroy Chiao (@AstroDude),  four-time spaceflyer and commander the International Space Station. "He was my childhood hero, who inspired me to become an astronaut myself." [Photos: Neil Armstrong - American Icon Remembered]

"As young girl watching #NeilArmstrong step on the moon, the stars came a little bit closer & my world & expectations quite a bit larger," Jemison wrote as ?@maejemison.

Christopher Ferguson, the commander of NASA's last space shuttle mission (STS-135 in July 2011), was touched by Armstrong's modest demeanor despite his great feats in space.

"Today we lost a legend," Ferguson wrote Saturday as @AstroFerg." Neil was a source of personal inspiration and a humble and unassuming American hero."
