Elon Musk reveals SpaceX suit for Mars travelers


Elon Musk posted pictures of a new SpaceX spacesuit on Instagram. It's light and stylish, therefore was hardly designed for a spacewalk. However, it will be very comfortable wearing it on a spacecraft or in an international station. 

Musk has already posted a snapshot of a unique spacesuit at the end of August. However, on that picture you could see only upper body of an astronaut. Now, the member of Dragon crew is in full growth on the image, so you can consider all the details of the equipment.

For example, soft patches on the knees of trousers to keep safe joints of astronauts. Back of the suit is probably almost completely black and has extra soft patches to make it easier to cope with long flights.

Commenting on the image, Musk wrote it was incredibly hard to balance esthetics and function. Nevertheless, SpaceX experts succeeded.

On the picture, you can also see the manned spacecraft Crew Dragon, which is to make the first full flight in the spring of 2018.
