Neil Armstrong to be Memorialized at the Washington National Cathedral

by Associated Press posted Sep 4 2012 7:28PM
  WASHINGTON (AP) - The nation will have a chance to say goodbye to Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, in a memorial service at the Washington National Cathedral on Sept. 13.
 
     The 10 a.m. service will be broadcast live on NASA Television and streamed on the websites of the cathedral and space agency. It will be open to the public on a first come, first served basis.
 
     Armstrong died Aug. 25 and had a private service in Ohio. The Apollo 11 crew delivered a moon rock to the cathedral in 1974 on the fifth anniversary of the moon landing.
 
     The service will be 50 years and one day after President John F. Kennedy announced a goal of sending a man to the moon by the end of the 1960s.
