Neil Armstrong’s lunar spacesuit lands on list of ‘101 Objects that Made America’
Astronaut Neil Armstrong’s spacesuit rubs shoulders with Muhammad Ali’s boxing robe, as well as Lewis and Clark’s compass, Abraham Lincoln’s top hat and Alexander Graham Bell’s telephone in a new list of the 101 objects that tell the story of the United States.
Several artifacts from the nation’s efforts to explore space are included on the list in Smithsonian Magazine’s special issue, “101 Objects That Made America,” which debuts on sale on Tuesday (Oct. 29). The list’s contents were “drawn from the 137 million artifacts held by the 19 museums and research centers of the Smithsonian Institution,” editor-in-chief, Michael Caruso, writes.
