Briefs: Walking in space

Interested in spacesuits? Spacesuits have to protect the human body from the extreme conditions encountered in space where temperatures can range from 135°C in direct sunlight to -82°C in areas of shadow. Cooling during spacewalking is provided thanks to a liquid cooling and ventilation garment fitted with a network of tubes through which water is pumped in order to remove excess heat. Take a close look at the cooling, life-support and other technology involved.
