Bras in space: How a bra company made the spacesuits the astronauts wore on the Moon.

Fascinating interview, though I find it humorous how it is considered absurd and unlikely for a private company that makes bras to make these spacesuits. In truth, when the Apollo missions happened, Americans had no doubt that ordinary private businesses were the best places to go to get something novel and creative done.

    I am more amazed at the authors surprise that a private corporation could do something like this without the government being in charge from front to back.

    Little does he realize but the government has NEVER made a scientific advancement without private companies building it and private citizens designing it.
    They might finance the final production but they have NEVER come up with the ideas or started the projects.
