Spacesuits for the Next Explorers (Full feature)

Spacesuits for the Next Explorers

Get a behind the scenes look at the creation of NASA’s new spacesuit, the xEMU (Exploration Extravehicular Mobility Unit). In this full feature, you’ll discover how the spacesuit is being built for #NASA​ ’s new missions beyond low-Earth orbit, looking forward to astronauts walking on the Moon and Mars and exploring in person

. Testing for the suit takes place in the desert, underwater, and in unique NASA laboratories that can simulate the gravity of the Moon, Mars, or no gravity at all. The end result will be a spacesuit that has more flexibility, a #technology​ that affords more power and more capability to allow astronauts to explore #science​ like never before
