Elon Musk shared photo of SpaceX space suit

SpaceX CEO and founder Elon Musk shared photo of SpaceX space suit. It is developed for NASA as part of the commercial crew program. Musk says the suit really works, and has been tested on a double vacuum pressure. The suit itself is very white and very roomy, and Musk recognizes that it is “incredibly difficult” to balance the costume’s appearance and function.

Today’s revelation is similar to the images of a SpaceX suit that appeared a few years ago on Reddit.  The suit has a helmet and what appears to be a low weight design.

SpaceX tractors are intended to be used by astronauts when they are inside the company’s Dragon Capsule. They are not intended for space walks, but are carried by astronauts during transport in case the capsule becomes depressed. In January, Boeing unveiled its own space layout design that astronauts will take on the road to the ISS.
