NASA is concluding ceremonies today honoring an event that took place some 45 years ago.


That was when the crew of Apollo II went from the Earth to the moon, with Neil Armstrong becoming the first person to step onto the surface of that world.


During a ceremony today, NASA is renaming Kennedy Space Center's Operations and Checkout facility in honor of Armstrong, who died in 2012 at the age of 82.
