Amy Ross leads the advanced space suit pressure garment development team at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center. Every day is an adventure as technologies and concepts for space suits to take humans beyond Earth are realized.
The scope of the work ranges from understanding human physiology to awareness of geologic exploration activities on planetary surfaces to knowledge of the fabrics that can keep humans safe and help them to be productive in hazardous environments. Currently her team is designing a suit of the future for demonstration on the International Space Station.
