Crowdfunding project to save Neil Armstrong's spacesuit

Monday marks 46 years since Neil Armstrong took his first steps on the moon.  The National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. has started a crowdfunding campaign to preserve his spacesuit.  They want to raise $500,000 to build a climate-controlled display case.  Conservators say spacesuits were built for short-term use with materials that break down over time.  The museum plans to show it off in four years, for the 50th anniversary of Armstrong's moonwalk.
