After a failed launch attempt on Thursday, the SpaceX team of astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley were on their way into orbit Saturday on the first US manned space mission in almost a decade. As you might have already imagined since this is a SpaceX and NASA partnership, the man responsible for the portable flamethrower that’s also trying to reinvent travel as a whole couldn’t let his astronauts go into orbit wearing the same obtuse, janky getups that all their predecessors wore. Enter the new SpaceX spacesuits. Described by many as a “human tuxedo for space,” this new suit combines all the self-sustaining systems, depressurization protection and flame resistant features of previous models while also incorporating a sleek new design that’s more Netflix Sci-Fi special than it is government bureaucracy. It doesn’t hurt that things like avionics and communications have been integrated into the suit through areas like the touch-screen-friendly gloves. The future is here.
