The Space Shuttle EMU (extravehicular mobility unit) is like a space ship for one person! It is made up of nineteen separate parts. Each part has a special job to do in keeping astronauts safe and healthy while they work outside their spacecraft. Can you match the description with the correct EMU part? Once you have made your decision, type the letter from the picture next to the clue which you think best describes the part.
