Did you catch the spacesuit?

As part of our NASA@MyLibrary programming, we borrowed an Apollo Spacesuit Mockup from NASA's Johnson Space Center. This suit is similar to the ones worn by the astronauts who walked on the moon! 

Our resident spaceman, Rick, showed off the suit at several library events last month. He visited the Henrico County Summer BLAST program at Montrose, Fair Oaks and Glen Lea Elementary schools, where over 150 students had the opportunity to learn about spacesuits and take part in a spacesuit design activity. We got a lot of high fives and fist bumps from kids who were excited to see a spacesuit first-hand. Everyone had lots of fun!

Rick also stopped by Varina, Twin Hickory, and Libbie Mill for the Intergalactic Fashion Workshops. During the workshop teens worked together to design their own spacesuit! Guided by the original NASA design, the prototypes not only looked amazing but were made to protect the wearer from the harsh conditions of outer space. Check out these great designs!

NASA@MyLibrary is an initiative to engage public audiences nationwide in informal and lifelong learning with the excitement of NASA exploration and discovery.
