Reboot the Suit: A Kickstarter to properly conserve Neil Armstrong’s moon suit

There’s a Kickstarter going on to preserve Neil Armstrong’s suit that he wore on the moon, apparently the Smithsonian’s budget is mainly operational and special projects like this are not funded except through independent sources like grants or Project Kickstarter. The Kickstarter sought to raise $500,000 and has made that goal and are looking for more to extend preservation to other space suits, like Alan Shepherd’s.

One of the backer rewards is the files to 3-D print a replica of the suit’s glove. A lot of gamers are also science geeks of one sort or another and I thought that some of you might be interested in participating.
