Have Spacesuit — And Spaceship

Some students got an experience beyond the spacesuit alone in the Have Spacesuit — Will Travel program. They got to explore an Excalibur Almaz spacecraft as well! These students were from a UTMB course, Intro to Aerospace Medicine. The day’s agenda was:

  • Health Threats in Human Space Flight
  • Crew Survival in Space Flight
  • Overview of US and Russian Military Manned Space Programs
  • EA facility tour and capsule familiarization
  • Manned Stratospheric Balloon and Freefall Parachute Flight Test Program
  • Space Suits for Survival and Exploration
  • Sokol and Orlan Suit Familiarization
