"Technology" Z-2 prototype suit cover layer design

JSC2014-E-035306 (14 April 2014) --- NASA invited the public to vote on three cover layer designs for the Z-2 prototype suit, the next step in NASA’s advanced suit development program. The winning design will be used for the design of the Z-2’s cover layer which will protect the suit throughout testing expected to begin in the Fall of 2014. "Technology" pays homage to spacesuit achievements of the past while incorporating subtle elements of the future. By using Luminex wire and light-emitting patches, this design puts a new spin on spacewalking standards such as ways to identify crew members. Photo credit: NASA
