One small step for fashion, one giant leap for spacesuits

New Space Suit 

It’s sleek. It’s chic. It’s very, very, very tight. All the better to show an astronaut’s gravity-defying figure back on earth.

Introducing the BioSuit: a prototype spacesuit recently completed by scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

When the white high-tech design is finalized in a few years, it will be the first new look for astronauts in more than four decades, replacing the lumpy, awkward 300-pound outfit with something worthy of a super hero.
