Snuggies... in Space!

4:40 PM -- How do researchers at North Carolina State University say astronauts should be protected from "one of space's most troublesome threats"? With Snuggies, obviously.



According to Network World, the researchers are developing so-called "space snuggies" that shield wearers from radiation.

    The "lunar textshield," developed by North Carolina State University students, is a sort of radiation snuggie or blanket made from a lightweight polymer material that has a layer of radiation shielding that deflects or absorbs the radiation so astronauts are only exposed to a safe amount.

And it comes with a free book light!
