    This is an exact replica of the
NASA Apollo 11 Spacesuit worn by astronaut Neil Armstrong when he made the historic trip to the Lunar surface which landed the first man on the moon on July 20, 1969.

The original suit was made by the International Latex Corporation, with the designation A-7L. When combined with the portable life support system and other components, the suit weighed approximately 180 pounds here on earth. Of course it weighed zero in space.

  The spacesuit Neil Armstrong wore was designed to provide a life sustaining environment for the astronaut during extra vehicular activity (EVA) or during unpressurized spacecraft operation. It was designed to be worn with relative comfort for up to 115 hours in conjunction with the liquid cooling under garment. It was also capable of being worn for 14 days in an unpressurized mode.
The front of the suit had basic environmental controls and life-support attachments. The hoses went to the support system on the back of the suit.
    Each spacesuit was custom made to the measurements of the astronaut wearing it. The suits were entered from the rear. The inside of the suit was constructed of a nylon comfort layer, a neoprene-coated nylon pressure bladder and nylon restraint layer. 
    The outer layers of the spacesuit consisted of a material called Nomex, two layers of a Teflon-coated Beta cloth, followed by layers of neoprene-coated nylon, layers of Beta/ Kapton spacer laminate, and an outer layer of Teflon-coated Beta cloth. During the EVA periods, a liquid-cooling garment was worn closest to the skin. 

    The helmet was a clear bubble designed to attach to the spacesuit neck ring. The gloves were built of an outer shell of Chromel-R fabric and thermal insulation to provide protection when handling extremely hot and cold objects. The blue fingertips were made of silicone rubber to provide more sensitivity.

   Once on the Moon's surface, Armstrong exited the Lunar Lander first. He was the first human to walk on the moon. He was followed by astronaut Buzz Aldrin pictured here after placing a U.S. flag on the Lunar surface.

    During their stay on the Moon, the astronauts set up scientific experiments, took photographs, and collected lunar samples. They blasted off from the Moon on July 21, 1969 and returned to Earth on July 24th .
