VOTE FOR THE DESIGN OF NASA Z-2 SPACESUIT

NASA has recently released the designs for their newest next gen spacesuit: Z-2. As a follow up to the Z-1 suit (think Buzz Lightyear), Z-2 takes the design to new milestones with improvements, including: 

  • First surface-specific planetary mobility suit to be tested in full vacuum
  • First use of 3D human laser scans and 3D-printed hardware for suit development and sizing
  • Most advanced use of impact resistant composite structures on a suit upper and lower torso system
  • First integration of the suit-port concept with a hard upper torso suit structure
  • Most conformal and re-sizeable hard upper torso suit built to date

OPTION #1: “Biomimicry”
