"On behalf of our Challenger Center family, we are deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Neil Armstrong, a true American hero. A constant source of inspiration to people around the globe, we were fortunate enough to consider Neil a friend of our organization. His passion and determination will continue to inspire students each and every day. We are grateful for his support and encouragement and send our thoughts and prayers to his family and friends."
