WASHINGTON, United States — The spacesuit that US astronaut Neil Armstrong wore 50 years ago during the Apollo 11 mission to the moon is unveiled at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington.

Lisa Young, who worked to conserve the spacesuit, called it "an engineering marvel" that "kept Neil Armstrong alive" on the moon. Armstrong's spacesuit was last shown to the public at the museum 13 years ago.
