Project PoSSUM Forum: Experiencing the Extremes of an Aerospace Environment

Join former NASA astronaut Winston Scott and international aerobatic champion Patty Wagstaff as they speak on the physical conditioning needed and extreme physiological stresses that occur in the air and out is space. Scott will share his experience in EVA spacesuits and how that knowledge might influence the design of the next generation of spacesuits. Wagstaff will speak about the physical conditioning needed for the extreme physiological stresses of aerobatic competition. Project PoSSUM Executive Director Dr. Jason Reimuller will facilitate the talk. This event is free and open to the public.

 

Project PoSSUM is a non-profit research and education organization that is training citizen-scientist astronaut candidates to travel into the mesosphere (30-50 miles above the Earth) to study changes in the upper atmosphere to help understand how these changes affect the global climate. The training involves immersive educational programs held in partnership with Embry-Riddle at its Daytona Beach Campus.
