Since its 2007 inception, the NASA U.S. Spacesuit Knowledge Capture (SKC) Program has shared historical spacesuit information with engineers and other technical team members to expand their understanding of the spacesuit’s evolution, known capability and limitations, and future desires and needs for its use. As part of the SKC Program, subject- matter experts have delivered presentations, held workshops, and participated in interviews to share valuable spacesuit lessons learned to ensure this vital information will survive for existing and future generations to use. These events have included spacesuit knowledge from the inception of NASA’s first spacesuit to current spacesuit design. To ensure that this information is shared with the entire NASA community and other interested or invested entities, these SKC events were digitally recorded and transcribed to be uploaded onto several applicable NASA Web sites. This paper discusses the various Web sites to which the SKC events are uploaded and possible future sites that will channel this information.
