The Awesome Spacesuit Testing Opportunity
Teachers in Space, Inc. and several select members of the space community will test Final Frontier Design (FFD)’s commercial spacesuit aboard a microgravity research flight.
We are assisting Final Frontier Designs (FFD) in evaluating their current lunch and re-entry spacesuit. The goal of this testing is to validate FFD’s suit for FAA Office of Space Transportation Flight Safety Approval; this would be the first space suit to achieve FAA Flight Safety Approval.
The best part of this? You can be a member of the crew. Just enter our contest and if selected, you could be going on the flight, assisting our Pathfinder in getting valuable data for Final Frontier Design. To find out more, just click the button below.
