Apollo 11: Neil Armstrong’s Spacesuit Goes on Display

For the first time in 13 years, the spacesuit astronaut Neil Armstrong wore in his mission to the moon went on display to the public at the Smithsonian’s Air & Space Museum on Tuesday, July 16, exactly 50 years to the day when the Apollo 11 spacecraft launched into space.
The ceremony was attended by Armstrong’s son Rick who unveiled it along with Vice President Mike Pence, who recalled how the U.S. was deeply divided in the late 1960s but came together in pride when Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon on July 20, 1969.
