Space X and Tesla CEO Elon Musk has posted a picture of the Space X spacesuit on Instagram. He also revealed that the suit has been tested and works as intended.
The spacesuit pictured are designed to be worn by astronauts whilst inside Space X’s Dragon Capsule, they are no designed to be worn for things like spacewalks.
First picture of SpaceX spacesuit. More in days to follow. Worth noting that this actually works (not a mockup). Already tested to double vacuum pressure. Was incredibly hard to balance esthetics and function. Easy to do either separately.
