The next frontier in spacesuit design — from Delaware's own ILC Dover [video]
A firm tucked away in the cornfields of Frederica, Del., has played a key role in U.S. space exploration.
That legacy is set to continue.
For decades, every accomplishment made in the U.S. space program included a contribution from ILC Dover. When the space program ended, some wondered if that would end the connection with ILC and outer space, but NASA has awarded an 18-month contract to ILC Dover to design, manufacture and test the next generation of the space agency's spacesuits.
