Spacesuit Testing

Thumbnail

Here is a quick shot of my "3.3" glove, which I finished last week.  I am very excited about the material I have been working with, a fabric that is factory coated with heat-sealable urethane.  The glove performs amazingly, and there are only a couple of patterning issues I will be dealing with in the next couple weeks (note the thumb distal metacarpal joint).

This shot shows the glove inflated to about 5 psi, just above NASA's spacesuit operating pressure.
