On the 50th anniversary of the historic launch of Apollo 11, the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum unveiled Neil Armstrong’s Apollo 11 spacesuit, back on display for the first time in 13 years. The suit was conserved, digitized and put back on display in time for the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2015. It is being temporarily displayed near the 1903 Wright Flyer until its future home, the “Destination Moon” exhibition, is completed in the next few years.
