Neil Armstrong died on 25th August 2012 and his family will be burying him at sea, though they won’t reveal when and where the burial will take place.
Wondering why sea instead of space? Well, Neil was a Navy fighter pilot before he joined the space program in 1962 — and burials at sea are common for Navy veterans.
A public memorial for Neil will be held at the Washington National Cathedral next Thursday. A private service has already been held in Ohio, Neil’s home state.
Neil Armstrong was 82.
