SuitSat

The Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) project will probably create one of the strangest ever Earth satellites this autumn. The plan is to install a radio transmitter in a surplus Russian Orlan spacesuit and launch it during a space walk. The suit, dubbed 'SuitSat' will send voice greetings to commemorate the 175th anniversary of Russia's Bauman Moscow State Technical University, have a video camera in the helmet and contain a CD of school children's artwork.
