Elon Musk, through Instagram, teased the direction his SpaceX space suit of the future would look like.
“First picture of SpaceX spacesuit. More in days to follow. Worth noting that this actually works (not a mockup). Already tested to double vacuum pressure. Was incredibly hard to balance esthetics and function. Easy to do either separately.”
SpaceX’s rival Boeing’s spacesuit is slightly less bulkier, but does retain the classic bumps we all know well from previous space suits. However, the SpaceX suit seems much more slimming. The technology behind that, we’ll have to wait for and see.
