Neil Armstrong’s closet held his secret stash of moon artifacts


Allan immediately realized that what was just found was a McDivitt Purse which contained items from the Eagle, Apollo 11’s Lunar Module. According to : “These artifacts are among the very few Apollo 11 flown items brought back from Tranquility Base and, thus, are of priceless historical value. Of utmost importance is the 16mm movie camera with its 10mm lens. The camera was mounted behind the right forward window of the lunar module and was used to film the final phase of the descent to the lunar surface, the landing, as well as Neil Armstrong’s and Buzz Aldrin’s activities on the lunar surface including taking the first samples of lunar soil and planting the US flag.”

The National Air and Space Museum now has all the found items and according to officials they have these items on load for preservation and research purposes. Eventually some if not all of the items could be displayed in a showcase for the museum visitors to see. And all this wouldn’t have been possible if Carol Armstrong would have not stumbled upon these wonderful items.
