The Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum opened on Tuesday, the first of 15 Neil Armstrong statues in historic size from its historic moon trip. The resin statue was seen in the National Park in Washington, USA.
The remaining 14 statues were erected at other basketball matches throughout the country.
The museum creates sculptures by scanning 3D original cases, which cannot be separated for measurement. The scan was completed as part of a Kickstarter funded project to store and digitize the cashing.
The museum says it has used four techniques to scan hands – scanning lasers to capture surface details, photogrammetry, to capture the right color, structured light sensing surfaces to capture geometry and CT to capture the inside of a suit.
“This object is a very important achievement in human history,” said Vince Rossi, a member of the Smithsonian 3D Digitization Team. “And it’s a tremendous honor for our team to work on a similar project so we use almost all the tools in our toolbox.”
Using the scan, the museum staff made a 3D printed copy of the jacket from which the resin matrix was made.
The initial lawsuit will return to the 16th on the museum floor in July, the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11, the Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins going to the moon.
After opening a lawsuit at the Nationals Park, 14 more lawsuits will be installed for the remainder of June and will remain until the end of the baseball season. Apart from the national stage, the Atlanta Bravs, the Boston Red Sox, the Chicago Cubs, the Cleveland Indians, the Colorado Rockies, the Detroit Tigars, the Houston Astros, the Minnesota Twins, the New York Yankees, the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Seattle Mariners and Tampa In Bay Beams will issued by one of the statues.
