Jean Wright, NASA seamstress

Saturday, August 10th at 10:30am

Rocket Quilts with Jean Wright NASA Seamstress

Did you know that the white material on the outside of space shuttles was not metal or glass but high tech fabric? Specialized quilts, two inches thick, covered space shuttles and protected the astronauts within from deadly heat and radiation. These blankets were an essential part of the Thermal Protection System that kept the orbiter cool during re-entry. Without them, the world’s first space planes would have burned to ash during re-entry when temperatures reached 3,000 degrees. Jean Wright was one of the many "Sew Sisters" who crafted these thermal blankets, mostly by hand, with incredible precision and skill.
