Annotated Tour of Armstrong SuitYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
Explore the space suit worn by Neil Armstrong on July 20, 1969 as he became the first human to walk on the moon! The National Air and Space Museum and the Smithsonian’s Digitization Program Office 3D scanned the suit, helmet, and gloves, and we re-share the data along with annotations and a background image from NASA’s Apollo photo archives now available in CC.
The famous suit was digitized using four primary capture methods: laser arm 3D scanning, structured light scanning, CT scanning, and photogrammetry. Want to see how it was done? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIlsQI40oSY - Our USF Libraries DHHC team member Joe Conrad, who worked for SI at the time, was integral in the suit’s documentation and can be seen in the video performing the scanning. Amazing project!
