Of all the topics covered, I was most unexpectedly touched by the segment on the women who constructed the custom-fit space suits. It’s an overlap of all my favourite things: space science, industrial design, making things, and preparing for catastrophe! I also love the incongruity of something so high tech, quite literally space age, being done by hand. It’s very personal, as each of the women explain how deeply they take their responsibility to do high-quality work. As one of the ladies explains, “Well, when they’re up there in space, you know what parts you’ve worked on, and you just say, ‘Well, I hope that part don’t fail because I’d feel it was my fault if it did.’” The women discuss how they’d like to go to space themselves, ending on how they’d like to go while wearing the suits they’d constructed because they could depend on it. It’s adorable, emotional, and so very, very human.
