Arizona Science Center: Space Helmet

A space helmet is vital for any astronaut traveling into space.

The helmet can protect the astronaut’s skull from any sudden impacts. Engineering your own helmet takes a lot of time and testing to perfect it. Using an egg to represent an astronaut skull, design and test an “egg-cellent” helmet for your astronaut.
