One of the last members of the team that helped send man to the moon was honored for his life's work Thursday night as the U.S. Space and Rocket Center bestowed its Lifetime Achievement Award in Education to Dr. Georg von Tiesenhausen.
A crowd of several hundred turned out to honor "Dr. Von T," as he is known at the center.
Presenting the award to Dr. Von T was Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon.
Beginning in the 1980's and continuing well into his retirement from NASA Dr. Von T visited Space Camp numerous times, educating and inspiring thousands of students and adults alike.
Dr. Von T, 96, is one of the few surviving members of Dr. Wernher von Braun's original team. He designed, among other things, the NASA Lunar Rover and Saturn V Mobile Launch Facility.
