For the first time in 13 years, the spacesuit astronaut Neil Armstrong wore in his mission to the moon went on display to the public at the Smithsonian's Air & Space Museum on Tuesday, exactly 50 years to the day when the Apollo 11 launched into space. The ceremony was attended by Armstrong's son Rick who unveiled it along with Vice President Mike Pence who recalled how the US was deeply divided in the late 1960s but came together in pride when Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon.
