Some youth cancer patients will chat Friday with an astronaut aboard the International Space Station wearing a hand-painted spacesuit they helped decorate.
NASA says astronaut Kate Rubins will wear the suit, dubbed "Nerve," during a 20-minute chat Friday afternoon with patients from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Rubins has a degree in cancer biology. NASA says she'll answer questions from the patients.
Three hand-painted suits are created through the job that NASA says is designed "to raise consciousness about the benefits of matching art with medication."
