I love this site, it so fucking rocks.

Just finished reading a couple of astronaut's autobiographies, guys from the early space program and their descriptions of wearing the early space suits is funny and terrifying, especially the guns who went on the first space walks. The suits were stiff, uncomfortable and often got in the way of doing much of anything.

Yeah, that was a bit frustrating. I don't think they have one for just that section.

It does. In chrome if I click on the RSS icon I get 3 options:

- RSS 2.0
- Atom 0.3
- The Fox Is Black ยป Space Suit of the Week Category Feed

The last on is the space suits only RSS feed - the link is: http://thefoxisblack.com/category/science/space-suit-of-the-week/feed/

So I was being sarcastic in my earlier post. This really is just a bunch of pictures of spacesuits? I'm not missing some holy grail of internets? Some subtlety? Or like, a spacesuit fetish or something? I don't want to miss out.
