The story of Neil Armstrong’s spacesuit, told by the women who made it


On this 50th anniversary of Apollo 11’s launch, NBC’s Harry Smith introduces Lillie Elliot, Jo Thompson and Ruth Ratledge, some of the women who hand-crafted the spacesuit Neil Armstrong wore on the moon. The suit did its job, and decades later, the Smithsonian is working to preserve it.
