For astronauts, the spacesuit is essential for life. It protects from the extreme conditions of space and is a life support system with its own oxygen supply, electrical power, water cooling equipment, ventilating fan, and in-suit drink bag. That sounds like fun, but nothing beats a T-shirt.
Starting with the records of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, formed in 1915 to study problems of flight and conduct research in aeronautics, the National Archives holds in trust the records of NASA and others related to aeronautics, including the mission photographs taken during the space shuttle program from 1981 to 2011.
