NASA Z-2 Spring/Summer 2015 Preview


Behold… The latest in space wear is here. Designed by a bunch of space geeks, the suit has taken a sci-fi inspired color palette and a completely different approach to what we’ve seen in the past. That’s because this suit isn’t for going into orbit, or even the moon, this shit is for real missions. Like going to Mars. Yea, none of that small time mining for moon rock and listening to Pink Floyd on the moon business. No way. This is the real deal. It’s not only designed for maximum mobility and durability to last the length of a trip as epic as Mars, but also has features that would would be directly related to the new approach being taken while exploring/inhabiting the far off land. For example the suit itself would serve as a port that would attach to the outside of their Martian apartment, minimizing contamination on your new Martian Ikea rug you just got, and simplifying a process that usually takes an hour, to mere minutes. On top of that it looks like there’s gonna be some cool blue lights ala Tron for maximum Martian rave style points. So that’s chill. Undoubtedly there were a number of design options to choose from, but why this one? It looks like Lex Luther’s version of a leisure suit. Interestingly enough, they actually allowed the public to vote on the final choice, so I’m guessing the other designs probably weren’t any better. Meh.
