Smithsonian to renovate, revitalize National Air and Space Museum over 7 years

The Wright Flyer, John Glenn's Mercury spacecraft and the Apollo 11 spacesuit that Neil Armstrong wore on the moon, among hundreds of more air and space artifacts curated by the Smithsonian, will soon be exhibited in a renewed space in Washington, DC.

The Smithsonian on Wednesday (Oct. 25) revealed plans to revitalize the National Air and Space Museum over the next seven years. The $900 million project will be achieved on a phased schedule so that many of the artifacts remain on view as the construction continues.

Wow, that's a lot of money — but it sure looks much nicer and less cluttered already.
