Does anyone know how this would be calculated or even if there are any examples of this posted on the interwebs somewhere?
I'll leave it to you to google translate the whole article, but the highlight for me was when the author tells how at first he was quite angry. Then, however, he begins to wonder what's the meaning of it all. "Fscked?" Maybe. "Read" is more like it.
Why not for the sake of materials research into interesting high-performance fabrics? I swear I feel like I must be more high-tech in my running suit or ski clothes than our astronauts are in space.
Why not for the sake of creating a strong and instantly recognizable NASA astronaut identity? No kid wants to dress like his dad already dresses on the weekend, but give the astronauts a snappy uniform and you won't be able to keep a kid out of his genuine NASA astronaut uniform long enough to put it through the wash! Today's kid is tomorrow's astronaut (or budget-making senator for that matter).
