It’s an emotional day for Adam Savage as he comes face to face with Neil Armstrong’s A7-L pressure suit, then learns about its long, delicate conservation process from National Air and Space Museum’s Objects Conservator, Lisa Young. You can now see the newly restored spacesuit yourself at the Smithsonian!

  1. Where does one get Neil Armstrong’s “measurements”?…i guess it’s on file at NASA! Fascinating video and description of the incredible conservation process

  2. Incredible care by all involved to bring this historic artifact to the Smithsonian. I hope people 1000 years from now will see Apollo suits that were worn by the astronauts.
