Virtual: Spacesuits -- What Every Fashionable Astronaut Is Wearing

Wednesday, December 7, 2022

Beginning with pioneer aviator Wiley Post in 1935, pilots traveling above the sensible atmosphere have required special clothing. Full-pressure suits control humidity, temperature, oxygen content, and pressure for astronauts, cosmonauts, and taikonauts. Join Solar System Ambassador David S. Ball as he discusses spacesuits required for intravehicular, extravehicular, and surface operations. Ball, a volunteer educator with NASA and retired Air Force officer, frequently presents on topics related to American activities in space.
