8 Dec Looking Up - 08 December 2017
Get me outta here! Take me home! Many of us would benefit from a button to press which would take us instantly home in safety and comfort. This is especially so during this Christmas season. For terrestrials such a homing device doesn't exist, but for astronauts it is becoming a reality. New space suits will have a built-in homing device to take the beleaguered astronaut back to their space station when they've got into difficulties, for instance if they've passed out. Sounds like a good idea.
