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.
