SciShow Space: the history and future of space suits


I found out today from Reid Reimers, from Scishow Space, that people have been designing special high altitude suits for almost a century now. Since the first flights until today, special suits that would protect the wearer’s body have been created to keep the air pressure as close as Earth’s and also to protect form the elements.

First suits were clunky and, of course, retro looking, but now we have the well-known white suits that the astronauts are using when they get out in space and also we will see some slimmers, more slicker suits in the near future. You go, NASA.
