Spacesuit Glove Designers turn to Kickstarter to fund commercial suit

The FFD 3G Suits are designed as a safety backup in case of an emergency loss of cabin pressure during a commercial spaceflight.

If you’ve been following the spacesuit industry long enough, you may have heard the names Ted Southern (formerly the designer of Victoria’s Secret angel wings) and Nikolay Moiseev – they began as competitors in the inaugural Astronaut Glove Challenge sponsored by NASA and ended up as business partners at Final Frontier Design.

Depending on your Kickstarter pledge amount, FFD will reward you items such as a patch, t-shirt, valsalva device, comm. cap, anti-G pants, helmet, glove, or even a complete space suit!
