      I like the human factors aspect and the intricacies of spacesuit design. The ESA Skinsuit that I’ve worked on is tailor-made for each astronaut. The suit technology developed also has the potential to be used on Earth to prevent bone loss and muscle atrophy in coma patients and children with cystic fibrosis.
