Center Naming Ceremony Honors Neil Armstrong, Hugh Dryden

Two giants of aerospace history were honored May 13 at a ceremony celebrating the renaming of the former NASA Dryden Flight Research Center for the late Neil A. Armstrong, the first person to set foot on the moon and a former research test pilot at the center. At the same time, the name of Hugh L. Dryden, who served as director of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics and was NASA's first deputy administrator, lives on as the namesake of the center's aeronautical test range.
