Sometimes you gotta scratch your nose. Or you need to perform the Valsalva maneuver (close your nose and mouth, then blow hard) to help make your ears "pop". If you can flip your helmet open, great -- just use your fingers on your nose. But if your helmet is closed, then you need another solution.
- A piece of spongy foam is in the Russian Sokol suit for these purposes (see picture below).
- The U.S. EVA suit also has a piece of spongy foam for the same reasons.
- Apollo spacesuits had a patch of Velcro for nose-scratching.
Does the SpaceX suit have anything to help with nose-scratching or the Valsalva maneuver?
