Living and Working in Space

Living and Working in SpaceWhat is it like living in space? And what about working there? This video conference will answer those and many other questions about how astronauts cope with the pressures of surviving in orbit around the Earth. You will also see a range of artefacts and examples of space hardware.

 

These items are made for manned space flight and some have even flown in space. The presenter talks the students through the equipment, how it is designed to cope with the harsh conditions of Earth orbit and adapted to suit the needs of the astronauts.
