apollo 11 anniversary


46 years ago, the world watched in wonder as Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the Moon. Now, the Smithsonian is launching an initiative to conserve and digitize the spacesuit that protected Armstrong on that historic mission – moon dust and all – so that it can go on display in time for the Apollo 11’s 50th anniversary. Help share this iconic treasure with explorers everywhere!
