Armstrong, Neil (NASA) The House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a bill late Monday to rename a NASA center after the late astronaut Neil Armstrong. The bill, HR 667, would rename the Dryden Flight Research Center in California the Neil A. Armstrong Flight Research Center. The flight test range used by the center, currently called the Western Aeronautical Test Range, would be renamed after Dryden. The House passed the bill on Monday on a vote of 394 to 0. The House approved a similar bill last year, but the legislation died in the Senate.
