Kansas Cosmosphere to Receive Neil Armstrong Artifacts

The family of Neil Armstrong, the first man to step on the moon, is donating two items from Armstrong’s personal collection to the Cosmosphere space museum in Hutchinson. The items are a 4-by-6 inch U.S. flag and a small piece of fabric from the wing of the Wright Flyer, the first flying machine built by the Wright brothers. Both of the items were taken aboard the Apollo 11 mission that reached the moon in 1969. Armstrong’s two sons donated the artifacts, which will be put on public display at the museum later this year
