NASA TV has produced and made a cool documentary called “Suit Up.” The documentary is about the last 50 years of spacewalks, or extravehicular activity, that started with cosmonaut Alexey Leonov in 1965. The documentary is narrated by actor Jon Cryer, and it features NASA administrator Charles Bolden and interviews with many astronauts who have completed spacewalks.
The documentary also features spacesuit designer, Dava Newman, as well as other astronauts, engineers, technicians, managers and luminaries of spacewalk history. They share their personal stories and thoughts that cover the full EVA experience– from the early spacewalking experiences, to spacesuit manufacturing, to modern day spacewalks aboard the International Space Station as well as what the future holds for humans working on a tether in space. Enjoy!
