Hey Y'all;
Excuse me for about an hour while I do some space geeking with this presentation from NASA about their new spacesuits;
https://images.nasa.gov/details-NHQ_2019_1015_Introducing Artemis Generation Spacesuits
Introducing Artemis Generation Spacesuits
Media was invited to NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C. to get an up-close look at the next generation spacesuits the first woman and next man to explore the Moon will wear as part of the agency’s Artemis program. NASA is preparing to send astronauts to the Moon by 2024 and is moving forward with design and development of the suits astronauts will wear on the lunar surface and other destinations, including Mars. The public event took place on Tuesday, Oct. 15 and featured NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine, who hosted a demonstration with spacesuit engineers.
And the 54 minute video can even be downloaded with captioning! :)
