Thanks for posting this fascinating video! To tell you the truth, I never gave a second thought to the astronauts' suits. But, of course, they were absolutely vital!

I thank you, too. What an interesting video. Those women were awesome - so dedicated to doing everything right. They certainly deserve that time in the limelight.
