Under the preparations for NASA’s 2024 Moon mission, a device called Lunar Evacuation System Assembly (LESA) has been tested.

  • Astronauts could not carry their fallen crewmate over their shoulder while wearing a heavy extravehicular activity (EVA) suit.
  • LESA enables an astronaut to lift their crewmate onto a mobile stretcher in less than 10 minutes, before carrying them to the safety of a nearby pressurized lander.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration
