Boeing Unveils Starliner Spacesuits

NASA astronauts who will embark on the new spaceship of Boeing will wear new spacesuits.

But, the trim design still meets NASA's safety and functionality requirements. "It is a lot lighter, more form-fitting and it's simpler, which is always a good thing".Someone at Boeing has been on a serious Kubrick kick, as evidenced by the new spacesuits for its NASA Starliner astronauts.NASA has hired both Boeing and Elon Musk's SpaceX to fly crews to the space station.

It is created to be comfortable while still providing functionality, with the helmet attached to the suit itself, touchscreen-sensitive gloves, and vents to keep the astronauts cooler.

Boeing Corporation on Wednesday unveiled the spacesuits that astronauts will wear on NASA commercial crew missions to the International Space Station. Its innovative layers will keep astronauts cooler as well. We've seen the ships from Boeing and SpaceX.

United States coalition strikes over 90 Daesh boats in Mosul
On Oct. 17, Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced the start of a major offensive to retake Mosul, the country's second largest city.

The architecture of the new spacesuit combines the first-hand experience of veteran astronaut Chris Ferguson with David Clark Co.'s decades of suit design, development, test and evaluation insight as the makers of more than a dozen air and space suits, including those for Gemini, Apollo and Space Shuttle missions. There are also zips in the torso to allow the wearer to move from sitting to standing comfortably.

The gas intact and output valves are located on the abdomen of the suit for easy access where they are needed the most.

Sometimes, Nasa astronauts will wear the Russian Orlan spacesuit.

"The spacesuit acts as the emergency backup to the spacecraft's redundant life support systems", said Richard Watson, subsystem manager for spacesuits of NASA's Commercial Crew Program.

The updated schedule will then have a Pad Abort test happen at the White Sands test facility in January 2018, followed by an unmanned test mission June that year.

During the test, Hopkins and Ferguson got into a mockup version of the Starliner spacecraft to test the suit's mobility. But it's not just about looks.

Since the retirement of the space shuttles back in July 2011, NASA relied on the spacecraft sent by Russia, Soyuz. The Dragon spacecraft from SpaceX and the Starliner from Boeing are now part of the Commercial Crew Program.
