Inside Adam Savage’s Cave: Ryan Nagata’s First Spacesuit!

While visiting Adam’s cave to collaborate on a project, spacesuit replica builder Ryan Nagata brought a blast from the past: the very first spacesuit he made when he was 14 years old. Adam and Ryan pore over the details of this suit, which includes snoopy cap, gloves, and helmet. It’s a testament to Ryan’s obsession, ingenuity, and attention to detail, all qualities which have carried trhough to his newest spacesuits.

  1. that is some really impressive work, especially for a 14-year-old. i’m with adam – the gesture seems completely there.

    as for the words ryan was searching for: i believe this is a good use for skill and talent. skill denotes the amount of chops, and talent is a way of specifying how the chops were acquired. (or rather: how it didn’t take much acquiring because most of it was already there)
