1 – SpaceX Spacesuit
Just last week, Elon Musk revealed the first photo of the SpaceX Spacesuit and we’re waiting for more details. What we know so far is that it has been tested to double vacuum pressure and it works well. These are pressure suits and are not made for space walk, in fact, they will be worn inside the Dragon Capsule when the astronauts will be launched to and from the International Space Station. Musk admitted the difficulties of making both a functional and good looking suit but the result is indeed promising. We can’t wait to see more photos of it.
