NASA unveils its new spacesuits
The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has unveiled the spacesuits its astronauts will wear for future ISS and Artemis missions.

The new suits were created byAxiom Space, a private space infrastructure developer, in partnership with Collins Aerospace, an aerospace and defense products provider.

According to the designers, the ideology sought with these new suits was to create “a modern, sportier feel .”

Since 2019 that NASA and its partners have been working on these new suits. The previous suits are more than 40 years old, so they are not well adapted to the new realities.

For example, forty years ago, women did not fly in space.

Today, they are part of all missions.

“When we get to the moon (Artemismissions), we will have our first person of color and our first woman wearing and using these suits in space,” said Vanessa Wyche, director of NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.

Before being used onArtemismissions, the newspacesuits will be tested aboard the International Space Station (ISS).

The Artemis program was launched by NASA in December 2017 and aims to return humans to the Moon by 2025.

Two of the program’s near-term goals are to land the first woman and the first person of color on the Moon.
