We are building a flight certified space suit for the burgeoning commercial space industry!
Since our campaign, FFD space suits have flown in multiple aircraft over 15,000ft, undergone 100hrs+ of pressurization, been tested by over 30 private individuals, NASA trainers & astronauts, and most recently helped train aspiring civilian astronauts!

      @ Kate Hora- What an honor to hear from you! Of course we have heard of and read about the famous one eyed Wiley Post. In fact my dog is named after him!
      I am really glad to know that you see a connection with your great uncle, we are proud to carry on his brave tradition.
      Look us up next time you're in NYC, we will give you a tour of the studio!
      -Ted

      When I read about this project, I knew I had to be a (small) part. My mother's uncle & childhood hero Wiley Post, an early day aviator, was the co-inventor of one of the first pressurized suits. Unlike your suit, it was not comfortable or flexible. But it worked. He successfully flew as high as 50,000 feet, confirmed the existence of the jet stream & helped to pave the way for commercial air transportation. Now that government-backed development of space flight is ramping down, future hopes for space exploration & development seem to lie once again in the commercial arena. My humble thanks to Final Frontier & to all 358 other project backers, large & small. Every dollar & every good wish count. - Kate Hora

      I'm so glad this is getting backed! I've kept my eye on this one in the hopes I'd be able to scrape together some money to help with this. After strong arming my sister into paying up, I can now call myself a backer! :)

      350 - reached. Let's get the 400 Backers in the remaining 3 days.

    10. Creator Ted Southern on July 10, 2012

      First class mail to Europe for the patch costs about $4. If you pledge $14, that'd be very nice!

      How much do I have to add for shipping to Europe at the $10 level?

    12. Creator Mitschack on July 10, 2012

      Wohoo! Let's get to 350 backers!

      Nice to see that at least some still dream if reaching the stars..

    13. Creator Randall Hunt on July 9, 2012

      I think this is an awesome little startup. As a former NASA employee I would love to swing by your office sometime.

    14. Creator Ted Southern on July 7, 2012

      And Thanks SO MUCH everyone for making this a reality. We have been really touched to see so many people we haven't met help us achieve our goals. Nik and I are already working hard to begin construction on 3G.

      We're looking forward to a Telecon with NASA JSC Wednesday! And some new high profile press for the last week of our campaign!

    15. Creator Phil Miller on July 7, 2012

      A special thank you to the mystery backer of the $10,000 donation. Thank you for your visionary dedication to this project. Looking forward to seeing Ted's new space suit being available in the industry in the near future!
