No statute, no statue


Following the recovery of the Apollo 11 astronauts, Texas Senator John Tower introduced one of many bills to recognize the achievements of Armstrong, Aldrin, and Collins. This bill would have authorized the creation of a statue to commemorate the Moon landing. The bill was referred to the Committee on Interior and Insular Affairs. Congress did not enact this bill.
