We love tours of amazing things, and in How Astronauts Put on Space Suits, Norm from Tested delivers the amazing. With the help of Terry Dunn, Training Operations Manager of the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, we get to see the EMU (extravehicular mobility unit) and every essential uniform piece that astronauts wear under the EMU’s shell.
We also get to see some very cool tools that have been specially made for the unique challenges of working while wearing the suit “outside” in space.
