Text: What are some of the coolest projects you’re working on in space? - Simon

David Saint-Jacques: There is a cool project sponsored by the Canadian Space Agency, called Bio-Monitoring, where it would be like a smart shirt that can take all your vital signs, so you can be constantly monitoring your health without having tubes or cables connected to you. And I think that has great future for health monitoring in remote communities, or perhaps people on expeditions, or our deployed troops, or even people who have a hard time leaving their homes in a big city. This is the future of health care I think we're developing up here.
