Who’d have thunk it!?

Ted Southern, the man behind those spectacular wings worn by Victoria’s Secret Angels every year, has a new gig — working with NASA!

Back in 2009, the Brooklyn-based designer participated in an inventors competition and won 2nd place with his astronaut glove design.

Lucky for him, that 2nd place win turned into a contract with NASA and now he’s perfecting the design with his business partner Nikolay Moiseev.

As for what’s next for Southern?

He’s already hard at work creating a full suit for commercial-space travel.
