NASA is renaming one of its facilities at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida in honor of the first person to set foot on the moon. A ceremony to be held July 21 will celebrate the renaming of the Operations and Checkout (O&C) Building for Neil Armstrong. Timed to coincide with the 45th anniversary of the first lunar landing, the event will include remarks by Armstrong's Apollo crew mates Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins.

The Great Lakes Brewing Co's new seasonal beer celebrates the more than two dozen astronauts who have called Ohio home. 'Spacewalker American Belgo,' which the Cleveland beer-maker and pub will offer on tap Wednesday (July 2) and in bottles the following day, honors the 25 astronauts who've hailed from Ohio and the nine Ohioans who have logged hours walking in space.

A student-led effort to launch a Time Capsule to Mars stands to set several historic firsts. The project, which as of Monday (June 23) is crowd-funding the flight of photos to raise $25 million, could be the first private mission to Mars, first interplanetary use of CubeSats, first student-led endeavor to another planet, and the first interplanetary test of ion-electrospray propulsion.

United Space Alliance (USA) on Wednesday (June 18) presented a framed collection of 135 shuttle mission pins and a flown-in-space American flag to Space Center Houston in recognition of the workers who made the 30-year NASA program possible. USA is, or already has, made similar presentations to Kennedy Space Center, the Space Foundation and the US Space & Rocket Center as its means of "leaving a soft mark in history."

In a bid to improve the quality of life on the International Space Station and to extend the Made-in-Italy brand to space, two Italian companies have collaborated with the Italian Space Agency to develop and launch a coffee machine for the orbital complex. The ISSpresso is a capsule-based espresso machine capable of brewing the caffeinated beverage in weightlessness, offering the space station crew an upgrade to the instant coffee that has been the only option to date. Built by coffee retailer Lavazza and Argotec aerospace company, the ISSpresso can also brew tea, infusions and broth, so that food can be rehydrated.

20 KG for a coffee maker?

That's a fairly staggering cost to get this particular gadget into space, hope they use it more than my wife does the Keurig she begged me for.

Everywhere Buzz Aldrin travels, the people he encounters tell him where they were when he and Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. "I used to keep a little black book to keep track of where everybody was," the astronaut says. Now, for the 45th anniversary of Apollo 11, Aldrin has taken his little black book digital and launched a social media campaign to ask "Where were you?" You can share your moon landing stories using hashtag #Apollo45.

On Aug. 14 (weather permitting), a 180-foot crane will hoist Space Center Houston's high-fidelity mockup space shuttle, the Independence, on top of NASA's historic Shuttle Carrier Aircraft for an exhibit unlike any other in the world. When opened in March 2015, visitors will be able to walk through the 747 jet and replica orbiter. collectSPACE offers an exclusive first look at what guests will experience when they go inside Independence.

Just over a week after she was excluded from Russia's cosmonaut corps, the federal space agency Roscosmos has reinstated Anna Kikina. The 29-year-old engineer, who was recruited in 2012 as the only female candidate in her group, will reportedly need to undergo another year of training before she will be eligible for a spaceflight. Kikina now stands the chance to become only the fifth Russian woman in history to fly in space.

The Kansas Cosmosphere has launched Liberty Bell 7 on the first leg of a journey to Germany, but the museum has a new mission for the Mercury capsule and the other spacecraft it displays. The Cosmosphere is devoting five years and $15 million to revitalize its exhibits to "inspire innovation through science education and honor the history of space exploration."

Russia graduated six new test-cosmonauts on Monday (June 16), two years after they were chosen to undergo basic training. The new class of cosmonauts includes five engineers and a military pilot of ages ranging between 30 and 36. The group is short two of its original candidates: one was medically disqualified; the other, the only woman, was cut for unannounced reasons.

Lily Koppel is flying high. One year after the release of her latest bestseller, "The Astronaut Wives Club," the book is newly out in paperback, has inspired dessert and cocktail "retro-recipes," and will soon be the basis for a limited event television series to air on ABC. collectSPACE.com caught up with Koppel as she launched on her second "Astronaut Wives Club" book tour to reflect on the past year, talk about the softcover edition and learn if she will be playing an astronaut wife on TV.
