Once again VICE is on the move with this fantastic VICE MOTHERBOARD article about an unlikely duo working on the next generation space suit in Brooklyn, NY.

Ted Southern, a costume designer from Pratt, and Nik Moiseev, a former Russian cosmonaut engineer, got together to compete in the 2009 Astronaut Glove Competition in NASA’s Centennial Challenge and ended up winning 2nd place. With space suit design normally reserved for a whole team of engineers, Ted and Nik are certainly venturing into rough territory but so far they’ve made great strides in their research. Check out the video below to see how they are doing it.
