See original photographs of suits worn by astronauts from Project Mercury through the Skylab program, suits used in testing and training, and new X-ray images of the interiors of the spacesuits. Also on view are 10 objects from the National Air and Space Museum's collection, including a glove, a boot, and helmets. The exhibition celebrates the remarkable creativity and determination of the extraordinary few who ventured into space, and reveals the brilliant ingenuity of the hundreds more who worked tirelessly—and often anonymously—to get them there.
