Astronauts to Commemorate Moon Training in Iceland

“To land on the moon is one of the biggest achievements of the human race. And that Iceland has this connection is fabulous, I think, and we should uphold it.”
Five astronauts and Neil Armstrong’s descendants will visit Iceland at the invitation of the Exploration Museum in Húsavík, Northeast Iceland, next summer to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the training for the moon landing in the Icelandic highlands in 1965 and 1967.

The astronauts and the descendants of Neil Armstrong, the first person to walk on the moon, will be taken on an excursion of the country, according to Iceland Review.
