“That’s one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind.” Astronaut Neil Armstrong spoke these famous words as he became the first person to walk on the Moon 50 years ago this July. His spacesuit, really a small spacecraft, allowed him to take this historic walk. Join STEM in 30 to learn about the research and conservation efforts that went into ensuring that this suit will last for generations to come.
