Statement by Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison on the Life of Neil Armstrong

Press Release From: Sen. Hutchison
Posted: Saturday, August 25, 2012

I was saddened to hear the news of the death of Neil Armstrong. The extraordinary courage and dedication it took to be one of the first to travel to the moon and set foot on its surface cannot be overstated.

Though his achievement ranks him among the most important explorers in human history, he viewed his individual accomplishment in a larger context of public service and encouraged us to follow his example in our own way.

He will always be remembered as one of the most iconic pioneers of the NASA community - dedicated to the team that helped him achieve glory for us all.
