Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 52 Flight Engineers Peggy Whitson, Jack Fischer and Randy Bresnik of NASA discussed the latest “UNITY” space suit that arrived on the orbital laboratory aboard the SpaceX/Dragon cargo craft Aug. 16 during an in-flight conversation with former astronaut Nicole Stott at Mission Control in Houston Aug. 23. In Sept. 2016, an historic 14-day global art endeavor was mounted by Stott and the Space Suit Art Project team.
