+ - Ex-Aerospace Engineer Wins NASA Glove Contest

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "An unemployed former aerospace engineer has built a better spacesuit glove, claiming the first payoff in the NASA-backed Centennial Challenges competition. Peter Homer clinched a $200,000 prize in this week's Astronaut Glove Competition with a spacesuit glove that proved more comfortable, durable and flexible than gloves currently used by spacewalking astronauts. "When I started, I didn't know anything about making a glove," Homer said. "It was a great learning experience along the way.""
