Friday was career day at Amidon-Bowen Elementary. The school is located two blocks away from headquarters and I was there, as part of a team from NASA, to inspire the next generation of explorers. I talked about the agency's missions and the Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU), aka space suit. Surprisingly, it doesn't take that long to put it on. That darn thing weighs over 200 lbs. I had it on for less than five minutes. Had a lot of fun though.
