Jet suite, spacex suit and kids bathing suits could save lives
In December, we reported that a new version of the SpaceX Space Suit, which can travel at up to Mach 2, could be cheaper than previously thought.
Now it appears that a cheaper version of SpaceX’s Space-X Falcon 9 rocket could also be a lifesaver for kids.
In a report published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), researchers examined data collected by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) on how much children spend on bathing suits, which the researchers say could be one of the most important data points for saving lives.
Their findings show that the most common spending category is on bathing uniforms.
In terms of overall spending, children spent an average of $8,858 on bathing attire and clothing, with $5,929 on a space suit.
The most common reason for wearing a bathing suit was to reduce the risk of overheating, according to the NCES.
A Space-x Space Suit with the ability to travel at Mach 2 could reduce the amount of children spending on bathing, as well as the amount they spend on non-essential expenses.
The suit, which would also be able to fly to low-Earth orbit, could reduce overall spending by about $8.6bn in one year.
SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has previously promised to save up to 70% of the cost of the company’s Space Capsule in the event that SpaceX launches a Falcon 9, which has the ability and ability to reach deep space, in the next three years.
This latest research, however, suggests that even with the new SpaceX rocket, children would still need to spend about $10,000 on bathing gear and clothing each year.
The researchers estimate that the cost per child for each bathing suit would increase to $25,000 in 2019, while the cost for the space suit would rise to $35,000 per child in 2021.
According to the study, one of two reasons for spending on space suits would be to reduce their own risk of heatstroke and the risk that other children in their homes might also be exposed to.
The researchers also found that the majority of the space suits spent by children were purchased for less than $20,000, and that children were spending more on bathing equipment than they did on nonessential expenses such as eating out, which is an important consideration for the healthcare industry.
