Space Suit Art Project flies in International Space Station

http://youtu.be/_MdJ2J_D_7c Following the success of The Space Suit Art Project, a collaboration between The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), a second space suit, named COURAGE, was created by children and their families at MD Anderson and sent to the International Space Station. This suit is a flight suit that the children painted directly on and will be worn by astronaut Kate Rubins while she works and lives aboard the space station. Patients from MD Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital will have the opportunity to speak with Kate, currently living and working on the International Space Station on Friday, Sept. 16. The 20-minute, Earth-to-space call will air live on NASA Television and the agency’s website.
