Spacesuit of the 26th century Contest

THE SPACESUIT OF THE 26th CENTURY -DESIGN CONTEST ELFIA 2016 WITH ASTRONAUT ANDRE KUIPERS


SciFi movies like Interstellar, Martian and Star Trek all have their own vision on the spacesuit of the future.
But what if we would ask you: how do you see the spacesuit of the 26th century, 500 years from now, what would you show us? Which combination of fashion and technique would rise out of your pencil and needle?
That’s why we launch a contest ‘spacesuit of the 26th century’
You can create a design in 2D (on paper or digital); and/ or in 3D (a real designed spacesuit)
Send in your design, at the latest March 31, 2016 and let it be judged by an expert jury.

A selection of the participants will be invited to be present during Elfia on Sunday April 24. None other then the nationale space hero Andre Kuipers will announce the winners and will hand over the prizes as the chairman of the jury. 
The winners will also be published with their designs in the popular scientific magazine KIJK
