The suit is made of 21 layers of various plastics, and curators some of them - along with other plastic exhibits the museum holds, are beginning to rot.

LRO Sees Apollo Landing Sites

NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, or LRO, has returned its first imagery of the Apollo moon landing sites. The pictures show the Apollo missions' lunar module descent stages sitting on the moon's surface, as long shadows from a low sun angle make the modules' locations evident.

Except for the astronaut behind the camera, this photo contains every single human being who was alive at that moment.

The photo was taken by the astronaut Michael Collins while Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were returning to the command module for the journey home after having landed on the moon. With the Earth in the background, it's a photo of everyone who was alive at the time. (Except for Michael Collins, of course.)

Remembering Apollo 11

40 years ago, three human beings - with the help of many thousands of others - left our planet on a successful journey to our Moon, setting foot on another world for the first time. Tomorrow marks the 40th anniversary of the July 16, 1969 launch of Apollo 11 with astronauts Neil A. Armstrong, Michael Collins and Edwin E. "Buzz" Aldrin Jr. aboard. The entire trip lasted only 8 days, the time spent on the surface was less than one day, the entire time spent walking on the moon, a mere 2 1/2…
