On July 20, 1969, humans achieved a big milestone when Neil Armstrong’s landed on the moon. It was considered among the biggest achievements of that time. A high-tech suit protected Armstrong from severe atmospheric conditions on the moon.
It was also containing all the things that were required by him to complete that mission to land on the moon.
However, it appeared that the popular spacesuit is in danger of not celebrating its 50th anniversary. As a result of this, the Smithsonian Institution formed a Kickstarter campaign in order to raise money for its restoration and asked the public to take part in the attempts to “conserve, digitize and display” Apollo 11 spacesuit that was worn by Armstrong.
“Reboot the Suit: Bring Back Neil Armstrong’s Spacesuit” is the name given to the campaign that is aimed at raising an amount of $500,000 so as to carry on the restoration project. It unexpectedly achieved its goal in nearly five days since it was launched.
As a result of this, the joint Smithsonian and Kickstarter team promoted the campaign further and raised goal of the campaign to $700,000. The Smithsonian was also able to preserve the spacesuit that Alan Shepard used in 1961 when he became the first American to reach outer space.
In 1976, the popular Neil Armstrong spacesuit was displayed for public during opening of the Air and Space Museum. After that, it was taken to the Smithsonian Institution for protection and tightly-contained storage facilities were used for its protection.
