First to get to the Moon?
First to photograph the Far Side?
First to name most of the Far Side?
The Russians. In fact, the entire far Side is liberally peppered with Russian names.....
I don't recall NASA or RUSSIA naming any part of the Moon after the man that got them there:
Werner Von Braun.
Though, I may be mistaken...
