The NASA Dryden Flight Research Center At Edwards Air Force Base was renamed Armstrong Flight Research Center to honor the work he did there for much of his life.

I'm not really one for these name changes like that. I'll still refer to it as Dryden. Just like the tall office building in in Chicago is referred to as the "Sears Tower" by many instead of the current name of "Willis Tower". Just like many pilots still refer to the main commercial airport in New Orleans (MSY) as Moisant instead of the current name of "Louis Armstrong New Orleans International". I guess it's because us old farts just don't like change and we prefer to use the names that we grew up with.
