Elon Musk Previews SpaceX’s First Spacesuit

Elon Musk has posted the first photo of SpaceX’s pilot spacesuit which, yes, looks awesome. It features a pretty slim design with black accents throughout, while the helmet appears to be tinted to some degree. It’s worth noting this is a mockup, either: Musk says they tested the suite “to double vacuum pressure.” While you won’t be able to take space walks in it, it will be ideal for crew members aboard the company’s Dragon Capsule.

 

We’re not getting much information about the new suite (that’s coming “in days to follow”) other than it was “incredibly hard to balance aesthetics and function.” I would imagine so since this suite is so slim and elegant. Of course, we expect to know more soon such as who will be wearing the suits and when they’ll go into action so stay tuned.
