Digging on the Moon

This sketch is based on a photo of the Apollo 14 mission, in which the astronaut dug in the moon surface.

Digging on the Moon

I liked the clumsy pose of the astronaut, who is obviously hindered by the ballooning of the spacesuit.

That is all.

    The lunar space suits wouldn’t have actually ballooned out due to the pressure – that would have caused problems for the astronauts on the surface, especially when trying to get back into the lunar exclusion module. Their pose is more likely due to the bulky nature of the suit.

    There are instances in which that has happened, however – when Ed White first walked in space, he found that the suit expanded enough that he couldn’t return to the capsule, and had to drain some of the air to get back in.
