Have I mentioned that I’m a big Smithsonian fan?

Slashdot pointed me to a link about some recently discovered 1960’s space suits. The most interesting bit to me is that one of them is already owned by the Smithsonian, despite them apparently never receiving it. The Smithsonian rocks — the concept of keeps one’s national technological history in a well funded, coherent collection is compelling to me.
