When does a spacesuit smell like a new car? When it’s brand new! NASA is creating a new spacesuit for missions to the Moon and beyond. With improved mobility, flexibility and endurance the suit will allow astronauts to do more exploration than ever before- kneeling, bending down and walking on the surface of the Moon and one day, Mars. The suit is currently being tested in laboratories, on land and underwater.
Full Feature “Spacesuits for the Next Explorers” is coming soon.
