About Advanced Suit Development
In order to protect NASA astronauts embarking on a new class of mission, NASA has to build a new class of space suit. Far off explorers traversing the surface of the red planet will be exposed to an environment unlike what current spacewalking suits are equipped to deal with. Planned for use by astronauts as they travel to new deep-space locations, the next generation suit will incorporate a number of technology advances to shorten preparation time, improve safety and boost astronaut capabilities during spacewalks and surface activities.
