"Tranquility Base" was the name Armstrong gave the moon landing site after touchdown.

"NASA is remembering Apollo 11 commanderNeil Armstrong, the first human to set foot on another world, on the first anniversary of his death," NASA officials wrote in a video description.

"Red Beet Records recording artist and Grammy nominee Eric Brace, with some video assistance from NASA, honors Armstrong with an original composition, 'Tranquility Base,' originally written to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Apollo 11 in 2009."

Brace's song begins:

"Tell me Neil, what you were thinking
With all of us watching you on the TV
Taking small steps and giant leaps and planting the flag
In a place no one had been."
