It’s hard enough to escape the Earth’s gravitational pull and make it safely to space, but staying safe in space presents a whole new set of engineering challenges. Astronauts must be protected from extreme heat, cold, vacuum, fast-moving debris, and oh yeah, they need to be able to breathe up there! We’ll learn about the amazing innovations and life support that a space suit provides in this exciting demo that showcases the fascinating engineering challenges and solutions for exploring the final frontier.
