The Smithsonian has launched its first-ever Kickstarter campaign, to raise enough money to preserve and display Neil Armstrong’s Apollo 11 spacesuit:

For the Smithsonian’s first-ever Kickstarter campaign, we are proud to announce plans to conserve, digitize, and display Neil Armstrong’s Apollo 11 spacesuit in time for this milestone anniversary. We want to preserve Armstrong’s spacesuit – and the story it tells of its incredible journey – down to the particles of lunar dust that cling to its surface. Just like the Apollo program, we will accomplish this in collaboration of thousands of people across the country and around the world. And that’s where you come in.

Kick in a few bucks, wait a few years, then treat yourself on a visit to Washington.

Your donation is fully tax deductible and totally awesome.
