Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of approximately 473 tweets using the hashtag "#SnapTheSuit." In 2019, the National Air and Space Museum (NASM) distributed 15 statues of Neil Armstrong's spacesuit to baseball stadiums and encouraged the public to post pictures of themselves with the statue using the "#SnapTheSuit" hashtag. The hashtag was also used by the museum and by NASM Director Ellen Stofan (via her personal Twitter account) to promote both the statues and the original spacesuit on display at NASM. Twitter is a microblogging platform and its posts are known as "tweets." Tweets using this hashtag were exported into a spreadsheet between May 30, 2019, and January 10, 2020. Due to technical issues, some tweets may be truncated. The hashtag "#ApolloAtThePark" is also frequently found in this accession. It was primarily used by the ballparks in relation to a larger celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing on the moon. This accession only includes tweets using the "#ApolloAtThePark" hashtag when it appears in the same tweet as "#SnapTheSuit." Materials are in electronic format.

Date:
circa 1970-1989
Descriptive Entry:
This collection consists of videotapes and audiotapes of Spacearium presentations.
Historical Note:
In 1974 the Presentation and Education Division at the National Air and Space Museum (NASM) was organized to develop and implement educational programs and operate the theater and planetarium planned for the new museum, then being built. A thirty-foot domed planetarium, called the Experimentarium, went into operation in the Arts and Industries Building to serve as a trial ground for the seventy-foot structure being planned. In 1975 the Federal Republic of Germany gave the United States, as a Bicentennial gift, a Zeiss planetarium projector for the planetarium. The planetarium was dedicated as the Albert Einstein Spacearium and opened in July 1976.

Von Del Chamberlain served as Chief of the Presentation and Education Division, 1974-1978, and Charles G. Barbely was Planetarium Officer, 1976-1978. In 1978, Presentation and Education was divided, with the Planetarium remaining with Presentation under Von Del Chamberlain until 1980. In that year the Planetarium became independent and the position of chief was vacant. In 1981 the Planetarium was placed under the Exhibits and Presentation Division, with Richard D. Crawford as Chief and Thomas H. Callen, II, as Chief of the Planetarium Unit. James H. Sharp served as Chief of the unit, 1983- . Since 1983, the Planetarium has been moved around the administrative hierarchy a number of times, from Space Science and Exploration, to Museum Operations, to Exhibits and Production Operations, and finally to Interpretive Programs, 1989- .

Descriptive Entry:
These records consist of the official files of Michael Collins as director of the National Air and Space Museum (NASM), 1971-1978. To a large extent, the files concern the planning and funding of the new NASM building, its construction, the preparation of exhibits, and the opening of the Museum on July 1, 1976. On day-to-day administrative matters, documentation is uneven and in some areas, lacking. Correspondents include Smithsonian and NASM staff, Congressmen and other government officials, members of the aerospace and other industries, museum directors, astronauts, and the public.

Date:
1846-1995
Descriptive Entry:
These records are the official minutes of the Board. They are compiled at the direction of the Secretary of the Smithsonian, who is also secretary to the Board, after approval by the Regents' Executive Committee and by the Regents themselves. The minutes are edited, not a verbatim account of proceedings. For reasons unknown, there are no manuscript minutes for the period from 1857 through 1890; and researchers must rely on printed minutes published in the Annual Report of the Smithsonian Institution instead. Minutes are transferred regularly from the Secretary's Office to the Archives. Minutes less than 15 years old are closed to researchers. Indexes exist for the period from 1907 to 1946 and can be useful.
Historical Note:
The Smithsonian Institution was created by authority of an Act of Congress approved August 10, 1846. The Act entrusted direction of the Smithsonian to a body called the Establishment, composed of the President; the Vice President; the Chief Justice of the United States; the secretaries of State, War, Navy, Interior, and Agriculture; the Attorney General; and the Postmaster General. In fact, however, the Establishment last met in 1877, and control of the Smithsonian has always been exercised by its Board of Regents. The membership of the Regents consists of the Vice President and the Chief Justice of the United States; three members each of the Senate and House of Representatives; two citizens of the District of Columbia; and seven citizens of the several states, no two from the same state. (Prior to 1970 the category of Citizen Regents not residents of Washington consisted of four members). By custom the Chief Justice is Chancellor. The office was at first held by the Vice President. However, when Millard Fillmore succeeded to the presidency on the death of Zachary Taylor in 1851, Chief Justice Roger Brooke Taney was chosen in his stead. The office has always been filled by the Chief Justice since that time.

The Regents of the Smithsonian have included distinguished Americans from many walks of life. Ex officio members (Vice President) have been: Spiro T. Agnew, Chester A. Arthur, Allen W. Barkley, John C. Breckenridge, George Bush, Schuyler Colfax, Calvin Coolidge, Charles Curtis, George M. Dallas, Charles G. Dawes, Charles W. Fairbanks, Millard Fillmore, Gerald R. Ford, John N.

Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of two pages from the National Air and Space Museum (NASM) website related to the 2017 total solar eclipse as well as tweets using the hashtag "#RoadTripToTotality."

The web pages were crawled on August 18, 2017, three days before the eclipse on August 21. One page provides information about solar eclipses and safely viewing and photographing them. The other page provides details about eclipse-related events and activities at the museum.

The hashtag "#RoadTripToTotality" was primarily used by the crew of "STEM in 30," a television show produced by NASM for middle school students, in their posts on Twitter. Twitter is a microblogging platform and its posts are known as "tweets." The crew documented their road trip to broadcast live from the path of totality. The hashtag was also used by others on Twitter to document their own experiences related to the eclipse. Tweets using this hashtag were exported into a spreadsheet between August 13 and September 4, 2017. The results from a search of Twitter on the hashtag were crawled on August 21, 2017.

Materials are in electronic format.
