Spacesuit Patricia Dawson

Patricia Dawson Working with Spacesuit Parts

Patricia Dawson, a Master degree student at the University of Nebraska, spent this past summer learning how to build a spacesuit as an intern at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum (NASM). Patricia used spare parts donated by ILC Dover to put the spacesuit together, and, in addition, wrote her own manual for the spacesuit’s assembly. Her step-by-step guide will serve future staff and interns.
