A funeral service for astronaut and Ohio native Neil Armstrong has been scheduled for Friday, with U.S. Senator Rob Portman set to deliver the eulogy.

Portman describes Armstrong as a good friend and advisor. Few details on the private Friday ceremony have been released. A spokesman for the Armstrong family says a public memorial service is a possibility.

Armstrong died Saturday, days after undergoing heart bypass surgery.
