The Smithsonian Raises $700,000 on Kickstarter to Save Neil Armstrong’s Spacesuit

How much is Neil Armstrong’s spacesuit worth? If crowdsourcing is a good measure, more than $700,000. More than 9,000 people have donated that much to a Kickstarter campaign by the Smithsonian Institution to “Reboot the Suit” and conserve the spacesuit worn by Neil Armstrong during the Apollo 11 mission in 1969, which put humans on the moon for the first time. Smithsonian wants to properly preserve the suit, which has been kept in climate-controlled storage for the past nine years, “down to the particles of lunar dust that cling to its surface.”
