Assistant Professor Allie Anderson's recent TEDx Mile High talk "Torn rotator cuffs & lost fingernails — why we must redesign the spacesuit" is officially available online to view.

"The spacesuit is one of the greatest technical engineering feats ever achieved. But did you know it causes significant injuries to astronauts? Bruises, sprains, pinched nerves, lost fingernails and even torn rotator cuffs. If we're going to send astronauts to Mars safely & successfully, we must redesign the iconic spacesuit first. Aerospace engineer Allison Anderson will show us how."
