Contest: Join our Spacesuit Test Team and Win Stuff!
Final Frontier Design (FFD), Teachers in Space, Inc. (TIS) and the Space Angels Network are collaborating to test the first multi-purpose commercial spacesuit, and you can join our team! In October 2015, TIS and the winner of this contest will test FFD’s commercial spacesuit, pressure garment, fire proof garment, anti-g pants, and a biosensor system during a highly publicized microgravity research flight.
You must write an essay on “Why Space and Science Education Matter”, and answer some questions about your physical fitness and personal commitment to human space exploration. Our winner will be chosen by a panel of judges selected from the space industry, government and academia.
Applications for phase 2 are open from 1 August on this website and close 18 September 2015. Application fee is $250.
