On May 31, the Crew Dragon aboard SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket approached the International Space Station, marking the first time a private ship successfully brought a man to the space station.
On a live broadcast broadcast on May 27, Elon Musk said he spent 3-4 years researching and designing clothes to balance technical efficiency with aesthetics. Each suit, tailored to each astronaut's body size, is light and easy to
help them adapt to oxygen depletion outside the atmosphere. (Photo: SpaceX).
According to the New York Times, Musk worked with Jose Fernandez, costume designer for Hollywood superhero movies such as "The Avengers" and "X-Men II" to create the prototype. "I want people to feel like a hero in those clothes," Musk said.
Unlike the colorful versions of the other astronauts, this clothing model is designed all white with small black patches along both sides of the body. The suit has only one connection point located on the thigh, which helps to connect to the air source and charge the battery. (Photo: National Air and Space Museum).
The helmet is also designed specifically for the size of the astronaut's head using 3D printing technology, integrated air transport valve. The helmet has a transparent toughened glass front, equipped with an extra microphone hidden inside for easier communication. (Photo: National Air and Space Museum).
The white part of the suit is made from a type of Teflon, similar to the material used for the outer layers of the Apollo space suit. The black part is designed with Nomex, a fire retardant fabric with temperature balancing function. (Photo: National Air and Space Museum).
The spacecraft's physical control panel has all been replaced with touch screens, so today's astronauts' gloves are all touch-compatible. In addition, these gloves can be completely removed from the clothes, but not sewn as before. (Photo: SpaceX).
