U.S. Space Gear: Outfitting the Astronaut
List Price: $29.95
From the earliest days of flight, design of comfortable yet protective flying clothing has proved almost as great a challenge as the creation of airplanes and spacecraft. With more than 150 illustrations, this volume shows how researchers and designers culled life-saving ideas from sources both expected and obscure: deep-sea divers' equipment, pressurized inner tubes, tomato worms, and medieval armor.
