Most NASA missions until now have not been set in deep space, and StemRad is hoping to change that by creating a protective way to explore the outer layers of the world. Their specialty vest was made to protect astronauts against deadly solar particles for when they land on Mars. NASA expects to send a mission in the mid 2030’s, and the new product will be beta tested on dummies in an upcoming unmanned mission to Orion.

The vest is made up of layers and is tailor-made for each traveller in order to best protect their organs, and allow for ultimate protection and flexibility. StemRad seems to have proven the concept in simulations; however, we will learn more about this new vest fits in once it revolves around Orion’s belt.  


Based in the startup city of Tel Aviv, Zo Flamenbaum is a writer and social entrepreneur who dedicates her time to mission-driven projects that empower connection between the many diverse layers of our world. In 2014, she founded School of Shine as a value-based educational space for women who are tired of the ‘default life’ and crave personal freedom through self-expression for more purposeful living.
