On Space Suit Design

Space suits, as every geek knows, should not be the horrible, bulky things that actual astronauts wear. They should be sleek, sexy designs as they might have been imagined by someone like Jim Burns. And, as Jennifer Ouellette reports, someone is working on it. Hopefully many people, in fact, though from an aesthetic point of view I think that Dava Newman’s design will be hard to beat.

As for the comments in that article about NASA, the less said the better: “inability to recreate heritage technology” indeed!
