Hodgson has developed a new scheme of much thinner and lighter spacecuits for future space explorers. They are supposed to feel like coveralls, rather than a big metal uniform. What do you all think about this idea? If it works, than I have no objection to it. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Sounds cool, though one of those looks like a sketch of a suit I drew a while back. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif When I think of future space suits, I think of the one from Red Planet. It has integrated electronics and a touch screen so the astronauts don't have to mess around with keys. -Colt
