Clothes vs Space suits

By: Maidah

On earth we can wear whatever wewant except in winter we have to wearsome extra layers like winter coat,winter boots, gloves and sweater.

Now, imagine the challenges an astronautfaces in space, where there is no air,no protection from cold and heat, and nogravity to keep his/her feet on the ground. In space a person can die in 15 seconds due he lack of oxygen. This is the reason why astronauts need spacesuits.
