It’s official. The Smithsonian’s crowdfunding campaign to preserve and display Neil Armstrong’s Apollo 11 spacesuit ended early this morning. And it was such a huge success, they’ll be restoring Alan Shepard’s suit as well.
The Smithsonian smashed through its goal of $500,000, ultimately raising $719,799 from 9,477 contributors. The campaign, called “Reboot the Suit” was launched last month as a crowdfunding effort to complement its other fundraising.
