- Meet Anne McClain - an engineer, @USArmy Soldier and one of the @NASAastronauts living and working aboard our orbiting laboratory.
In this photo taken from 250 miles above our home planet, Anne is performing spacesuit maintenance in preparation for her first-ever spacewalk.
She says, “Each suit is like a small spacecraft with its own power, air and water systems which work together to maintain the precise atmosphere in which humans can live, while also protecting us from the harsh conditions of space. Pretty phenomenal design!” For even more stories about women in engineering, check out our #Instagram story!

- Astronotların 15 katlı giysilerinin içinde farklı görevlere sahip 800’den fazla birim yer alır. Tüm bu birimler radyasyon geçirmeyen özel malzemelerden yapılmıştır ve bu giysiler astronotları aşırı düşük sıcaklık, havasızlık, basınç farkı, yer çekiminin eksikliğinden olumsuz etkilenen metabolik reaksiyonlar ve gök taşlarına karşı korumak için dizayn edilmiştir. Bu giysinin en büyük özelliği soğukta ısıtıcılarını, sıcakta ise soğuk su tüplerini kullanarak giysinin içini hep 22-25 derecede tutmasıdır. Vücuda yapay bir kan dolaşımı kazandırması ve oksijen – karbondioksit dengesini sağlaması da diğer önemli özelliklerindendir. Peki astronot giysisinin maliyeti ne kadardır? Bir astronot giysisi yaklaşık 12 milyon dolar (65 milyon TL) gibi “Astronomik” bir fiyata sahiptir.

There are more than 800 sections in the 15-layer suits of the astronauts. All of these sections are made of special materials that protect them from radiation. These suits are designed to protect astronauts against meteors, extremely low temperatures, airlessness, pressure difference, and lack of gravity. The biggest feature of this suit is that it keeps the temperature between 22-25 degrees by using heaters and cold water tubes. Another important feature is that it provides an artificial blood circulation and oxygen - carbon dioxide balance. So, what is the cost of this suit? An astronaut suit costs approximately 12 million dollars, which is really an ''astronomical'' price.

- On a past mission, dear reader, I once visited the extremely spiritual Plant Podlings of Kepler-443b. I was invited to wear the Sacred Foliage of Familiarity, which connected the wearers soul to those of all the living beings on the planet. What an experience. 🍂🌿

Mae C. Jemison (born October 17, 1956) is an American astronaut and physician who, on June 4, 1987, became the first African-American woman to be admitted into NASA’s astronaut training program. On September 12, 1992, Jemison finally flew into space with six other astronauts aboard the Endeavour on mission STS47, becoming the first African-American woman in space. In recognition of her accomplishments, Jemison has received several awards and honorary doctorates.
On June 4, 1987, Mae C. Jemison became the first African-American woman to be admitted into the NASA astronaut training program. After more than a year of training, she became the first African-American woman astronaut, earning the title of science mission specialist — a job that would make her responsible for conducting crew-related scientific experiments on the space shuttle.
When Jemison finally flew into space on September 12, 1992, with six other astronauts aboard the Endeavour on mission STS47, she became the first African-American woman in space.
During her eight days in space, Jemison conducted experiments on weightlessness and motion sickness on the crew and herself. In all, she spent more than 190 hours in space before returning to Earth on September 20, 1992. Following her historic flight, Jemison noted that society should recognize how much both women and members of other minority groups can contribute if given the opportunity.
