Dr. Paul Webb was the guest for this Space Show program to discuss his innovative Space Activity Suit, a different type of spacesuit that holds great potential for lower costs, more maneuverability by the astronaut, greater safety, less maintenance, and less required training. As explained by Dr. Webb, this new spacesuit is a mechanical counter pressure spacesuit made from a special type of elastic-like material. The Space Activity Suit would have no joints, no pressurizing gas, it would have reduced weight, it would need reduced expendable supplies and according to Dr. Webb, the suit has already been demonstrated through proof of concept. Dr. Webb's team will be submitting an RFP to NASA early in 2007 for developing this unique spacesuit as part of the VSE program. Dr. Webb fielded many listener questions asking about this new type of spacesuit so you will definitely want to hear this program to understand this spacesuit and its applications from the space tourism market to our return to the Moon then our voyages to Mars. This interview with Dr. Webb is comprehensive and his Space Activity Suit holds great promise for astronauts to have a simpler, safer, more trouble-free spacesuit with lots more maneuverability and hardly any maintenance. Dr. Webb has pictures and a very impressive video which he will send to interested people. Also, he will respond to your questions or comments. For the pictures, the video and for your comments/questions, please contact Dr. Webb at email@example.com. I also have the video which I can send to listeners if you contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The video is 9 mb so for you to receive a file this large by email, your email service must allow this file size and your email inbox must have the space in it to receive the video, otherwise it will bounce back to Dr. Webb or me. Only request the video if you can process and receive a 9 mb email file. Otherwise, Dr. Webb can send you pictures of the suit as he is the only with the pictures.
