DailyDirt: Space Suits For Everyone

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Commercial space flights for tourists could be a routine program someday soon. With that in mind, there is some renewed excitement surrounding manned spaceflight, and for people with a few million bucks burning a hole in their pockets, an opportunity to go up into low earth orbit is not a ridiculous vacation idea. But before you pack your bags, you should check out some next generation spacesuit designs that claim to be more comfortable than ever before.

If you’d like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

Total Recall 2.0

Since they’re re-making Total Recall, I think this is an appropriate question to ask again.. how long can people last in a vacuum?

“If you don’t try to hold your breath, exposure to space for half a minute or so is unlikely to produce permanent injury.”
