Amanda Young, a spacesuit caretaker for the National Air and Space Museum, has released a book entitled “Spacesuits,” which takes a detailed look at the carefully preserved suits worn by astronauts throughout missions during the 1960’s and 70’s. What began six years ago as an archival catalog eventually developed into a glossy coffee-table book. Young collaborated with Mark Avino, head chief of photographic services at NASM. A majority of the photographs in the book focus on the suits worn by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. The book’s release also coincides with the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Mission. “Spacesuits” can be purchased at Amazon.
