Writer’s Toolbox: Space Chain Mail

It’s usually we Science Fiction writers who inspire NASA and the private sector, and of course Hollywood.  But this seems like something we might bend into a story:  NASA has developed Space Chainmail.  (Like Space Pants… but better)

Imagine the story possibilities:

A Post Apocalyptic astronaut Dragon Slayer?

Medieval combat in Zero G?

A lone survivor on a lost planet scenario with nothing but the high tech Armor?

I thought it was all pretty cool.  So just posting here so that we can be inspired and write the fantastic.

And because I can’t get Space Pants out of my head I’ve posted that video below (after the Free Book ad)
