Kansas State University researchers are working on a spacesuit that could monitor astronauts' health and use body heat to power electronics.
A team of students and professors are working with a model space suit.
It's made of several layers of material, including metalized fabrics, to model the layers in suits that protect astronauts and keep them warm.
University researchers say batteries are too dangerous to place in a spacesuit's oxygen-rich environment, so the team is developing new energy harvesting methods to gather energy.
A comet named Pan-STARRS is visiting our part of the solar system and will be visible in the Northern Hemisphere for a couple of weeks.
The comet was discovered in June 2011 by a team of observers in Hawaii while doing a routine sweep of the sky and they named the comet after the telescope they were using.
Greg Novacek, director of the Lake Afton Observatory, says hopeful observers should look west.
