NASA dedicates Ohio test facility for first moonwalker Neil Armstrong

Neil Armstrong did not want NASA’s Plum Brook Station to be named after him.

The first person to walk on the moon politely declined the honor when asked, but on Wednesday (Aug. 11), nine years after Armstrong died and a week after what would have been his 91st birthday, a group of NASA officials and members of Congress presided over a small ceremony in Sandusky, Ohio, to do just that. Plum Brook Station is now the Neil A. Armstrong Test Facility.
