To save Neil Armstrong's spacesuit, Smithsonian turns to Kickstarter

The Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum is asking for help preserving and digitizing a suit worn by astronaut Neil Armstrong.

Of course, it's not just any suit. It's the Apollo 11 spacesuit Armstrong wore the day he became the first person to set foot on the moon, exactly 46 years ago.

Help @airandspace put Neil Armstrong’s #Apollo11 spacesuit back on display http://t.co/5CrzXYzDqv #RebootTheSuit
