NASA-Dryden Renamed For Neil Armstrong; Dryden Gets Test Range

U.S. Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Santa Clarita, praised the passage of legislation to re-designate NASA’s Dryden Flight Research Center as the Neil A. Armstrong Flight Research Center and the Western Aeronautical Test Range as the Hugh L. Dryden Aeronautical Test Range.  McKeon joined fellow local representative Congressman Kevin McCarthy in introducing this legislation.

“I will never forget watching Neil Armstrong take those first steps on the Moon.  In that remarkable and powerful moment, Neil Armstrong confirmed to the entire world watching that anything is possible and that nothing, not even traveling to outer space and walking on the moon, was too tall of an order for the United States.  Neil Armstrong braved the unchartered (sic) territory of space exploration and paved the way for revolutionary scientific discovery.

U.S. Rep. Howard "Buck" McKeon

“The Flight Research Center is a source of great pride for the Antelope Valley and is an epicenter for research and innovation. I am proud to be an original co-sponsor of this bill renaming the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center in honor of Neil A. Armstrong. Dedicating this stellar institution to Neil Armstrong is a small token of our public gratitude and will hopefully work to ensure that his legacy is honored for generations to come.”

U.S. Rep. Kevin McCarthy
