Calibrating Space




Engineers at Hamilton Sundstrand keep astronauts comfortable by 
calibrating systems that test environmental controls in spacecraft and 
space suits.

Windsor Locks, CT—Space is one hostile environment. There’s no air to 
breathe nor gravity to hold you down. Temperatures are frigid where the 
sun doesn’t shine and burning hot where it does. Anything that generates 
heat has no air to cool it. Thus, equipment and astronauts would 
overheat without proper cooling.
