That's fantastic. Now that this is done, have you given any more thoughts on the goggle lenses?
Nice feeling when you can put effort into a project and get a great result!

Woooo Hooooo! BIG NEWS!!!!!

“Jim,

Good morning, it is done.

NASA Meatball (Official)

Thanks”


Anyone who wants the “real” meatballs, as delivered to NASA when they order them, now you can get them!

I ordered two more for myself already! And an 8” back patch (I may make up a lab coat for work, similar to what I had at a previous employer.
Awesome - thanks for your persistence - just ordered a few!

The green ones for the ski googles. I sent you the blanks.
Yes I have them and have made a couple now. I found a pair with both the tinted (brown!) lens as well as the yellow one.

But I have not yet sold any of the lenses I’ve made, no.

Next week I’ll stop over and see if the flight suit is ready. I had her convert some BDU pants into shorts for me so those will be ready. She quoted two weeks since she has to re-stitch all the seams I had to open to get the stripes off…

I’d be keen to see the other flight suits/jackets/whatever you all are using your patches on!

I saw that listing yesterday on AB Emblems and I thought it must have been because of you. Guess I was right!

Interesting fact for future references: the suits I have are from Greenbrier Industries, who was the NASA contractor for suits in early 1990s. However, they were brought out by G&B afterwards. But there are still a lot of those suits in surplus stores that are running for a lot lower than the current G&B quote.

That’s interesting!

You can see the G&B black tags on the breast pocket seam of the current astronauts. And, although a bit pricey for a mil-spec full Nomex suit, the construction quality is absolutely top notch. After what I went through to get the stripes off my suit, I know they’re bomb-proof. Well worth the asking price, unless you can find your size used or surplus.
