NASA competitors finds a greater area glove
Wow, that was quick. We checked in on the NASA competitors to design a greater area glove just some days in the past, they usually’ve already topped a winner. Peter Homer, an engineer from Southwest Harbor, Maine, beat out three different rivals and the present NASA Part VI glove to bag the $200,000 prize together with his design made with off-the-shelf kitchen cleansing gloves and “a material materials he discovered on eBay.” The achievement is all of the extra exceptional for occurring within the contest’s first yr, since NASA does not often see very many winners in these challenges — actually, that is the primary time anybody has ever gained. Anticipate to see NASA trolling eBay for ISS elements within the close to future.
