Expert/ Educator: Working Under Pressure in Space Suits
How would you do performing critical space duties while
working inside a balloon? The engineering of space suits have the issue of
dealing with the pressure of an inflated suit and having astronauts work safely
and effectively inside a pressure bladder, much like a balloon. Working against
this pressure is tiring for the crew, especially while working with their
hands. In this session, participants will engage in a simulated EVA task and
experience firsthand what it is like to work under pressure in space suits.
