Child cancer patients to create special 'Dreamer 1' space suit

France, Villejuif, Paris
November 14, 2018 at 06:46 GMT +00:00 · Published

Child-patients at the Gustave Roussy oncology centre in the Parisian suburbs of Villejuif participated in the Spacesuit Art Project where they created colourful paintings for a special astronaut suit on Tuesday.

Retired US Astronaut Nicole Stott and President of Unity Public Movement (Russia) and Space for Art partner Alena Kuzmenko joined the little artists as they were given temporary relief from their cancer treatments.

Dubbed 'Dreamer I', the spacesuit will incorporate the children's colourful artwork drawn on pieces of rubber creating a stitchwork fit for an astronaut.

France is one of the fifteen countries participating in the Spacesuit Art Project which celebrates the 20th Anniversary of International Space Station (ISS) agreement.

The Dreamer I spacesuit will be manufactured by Russian spaceflight manufacturer and spacesuit designer NPP Zvezda and will follow the lead of its previous counterparts Hope, Courage, Unity, Exploration and Victory.
