Sewing spacesuits - Linky love edition

Threads magazine letters section, #189

A sweet Worchester Poly Journal piece on alum who sewed space suits.

The book on the topic that I referred Threads to:
It's come down in price, been made into a paperback, on it's way to me. I would like to thank Beth Butler for the reminder; I'm still excited about reading this.

This is as good a summary of the book and the topic as you're going to get outside of reading the book.

(sorry, this webpage will ask you to subscribe to read it, so I didn't link it and be prepared)
This article is more about the movie deal than the book, and more about space movies in general. I had no idea Eastwood let the Armstrong book deal lapse.
Someday....
