We were shocked to know that astronauts face medical difficulties due to harmful effects of solar radiations in space. Then, we got to know that earth's magnetic field has formed a shelter to protect us from radiations. Similar process is also happening in case of white swirls on surface of moon that is due to weak magnetic field. Also, we saw a news about limiting of women in space by NASA due to bad size fitting of spacesuit for them. The cost of spacesuits is also very high.
What it does
This kind of spacesuit protects the astronauts from radiations and it is customizable so that women can get spacesuit of their size. Currently, we have built a small example prototype (glove) and we have built a working e-commerce website through which customers can get their customized spacesuit at a lower price.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We did not have any equipment/resources in the beginning to accomplish this project. We did not have any facilities to create a prototype for a full spacesuit. We had to think a lot about how to make the glove wearable.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are able to complete working website. We successfully made a wearable glove which can protect us from radiations. We are solving problem for all astronauts including women who deserve going to space.
What we learned
We learned to speed-up the accomplishment of a project by teamwork. We learned additive manufacturing, wearable materials for spacesuits, 3D models etc.
What's next for SpaceBling
We are looking forward to successfully launch a product which can help astronauts and also promote NASA's ISS tourism mission.
