A few days ago SpaceX CEO and Founder Elon Musk share a photo of SpaceX’s rocket factory from space on Instagram. Now this time Musk shared the first official photo of SpaceX’s space suit on Instagram, teasing that more details will come few days. Musk says that the suit actually works, and already tested in double vacuum pressure.
The company really wanted to give it a spacey look and suit itself is very-white and very-spacey. However, on August 20th Musk tweeted that soon we’ll soon get glimpses of future gen NASA space suits. The company developed this space suit for NASA’s commercial crew program. And Here’s the first official SpaceX spacesuit:
These suits aren’t meant for spacewalks because they’re pressure suits, astronauts will wear these suits while riding inside the company’s Dragon Capsule. But’s worth noting that Elon Musk himself wearing this suit.
According to a post on Reddit, SpaceX has been planning for this suit from a past year, And maybe the design of suit got leak a year ago. In a subreddit called reddit.com/r/Damnthatsinteresting/, Redditor moonsprite posted space suit photo of SpaceX a year ago and surprisingly, they both look exactly the same. We aren’t sure if was a leak or a lucky guess but they both look same.
