The NASA U.S. Spacesuit Knowledge Capture (KC) program has existed since the beginning of 2007 and was designed to share historical spacesuit information with engineers and other technical team members to augment their understanding of the spacesuit, its evolution, its limitations, and its capabilities.
Many subject-matter experts have provided lectures, and some were interviewed to help bring the spacesuit to life to ensure lessons learned will never be lost. The U.S. Spacesuit KC topics have included lessons learned from some of the most prominent spacesuit experts and spacesuit users including current and former astronauts.
The events have enriched the spacesuit legacy knowledge from Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, Space Shuttle, and International Space Station programs. Also, expert engineers and scientists have shared their challenges and successes to be remembered. During the program''s existence, more than 65 seminars have captured spacesuit history and knowledge; those that are available at this site have been approved for public release.
