NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Monday marks 46 years since Neil Armstrong walked on the moon.
It was July 20, 1969 that Armstrong stepped off Apollo 11, becoming the first man on the moon.
On the milestone anniversary, the National Air and Space Museum launched a kick starter to its campaign to conserve the spacesuit Armstrong wore.
The historic suit has not been on display since 2006.
The suit is planned as the centerpiece of an exhibit in 2020 to mark the 50th anniversary of the moon walk.
Armstrong passed away in 2012 at the age of 82.
