A New NASA Spacesuit

NASA is in the process of getting a new space suit design for the Constellation program. The program aims to send humans deeper into space and eventually to Mars. Currently, there are two prototypes for new suits, a slimmer and maneuverable version launch and spacewalks, and a heavier suit for walking on the moon. The designs will allow for more protection and mobility in future missions to come.

Random Knowledge:
Did you know that astronauts wear diapers under their suits during spacewalks?
