Seriously Amazing Objects: SEASON 2: EPISODE 2

Risk Takers

The Smithsonian Institution is home to some seriously amazing objects with seriously amazing stories to tell about people who have taken risks and made history. From daredevil spacesuits to the dress worn by one of the Little Rock Nine, and from a top hat firefighting helmet to artwork wrestled back from Nazi raiders, we celebrate items that collectively remind us of the remarkable things we are capable of doing when we put everything on the line.
