Anicorn Watches has teamed up with NASA again to create a limited edition dual-branded watch – ANICORN x NASA - Ver. ACES Limited Edition. In our last collaboration, all watches were sold out in 1 min.
The Advanced Crew Escape Suit (ACES) or “pumpkin suit”, is a full pressure suit that began to be worn by Space Shuttle crews after STS-65, for the ascent and entry portions of flight. Introduced by the United States in 1994 to replace the Launch Escape Suit. Worn in case of an emergency bail-out over the ocean during launch or landing. The suit is a direct descendant of the U.S. Air Force high-altitude pressure suits worn by the two-man crews of the SR-71 Blackbird, pilots of the U-2 and X-15, and Gemini pilot-astronauts, and the Launch Entry Suits (LES) worn by NASA astronauts starting on the STS-26 flight, the first flight after the Challenger disaster.
For six decades, NASA has led the peaceful exploration of space, making discoveries about our planet, our solar system, and our universe. At home, NASA research has made great advances in aviation, helped to develop a commercial space industry, enrich our economy, create jobs, and strengthen national security. Outside the United States, our international partnerships shine as examples of diplomacy. Space exploration has brought together people of diverse backgrounds working for the good of all humankind.
