Chris Hadfield: Hi. Chris Hadfield on the International Space Station. Today we're talking spacesuits.
Spacesuits are really just little one-person spaceships. And they're complicated, and so they need checking out. And today the purpose of what we're doing is to move some from one location and the others into the airlock, and then once through the airlock, we can check out the health of the suits. That's the goal of today. Wish me luck.
There. All in place, secured, ready for a space walk if we need it.
