The Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong died after complications following cardiac bypass surgery, according to news reports.
Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon in 1969, arriving by NASA spacecraft built by companies with ties to the Puget Sound, including Boeing. In recent years, local communities have found ways to honor the Apollo program's achievement, such as a recent public art installation on Mercer Island.
