Boeing Starliner Spacesuit
Next year, NASA's astronauts will begin riding in a new spacecraft: the Boeing Starliner. The ship isn't the only thing that's new. The Boeing Starliner Spacesuit is the cutting-edge compliment to the new craft, bringing more safety and comfort. Thanks to advances in materials, it's 10 pounds lighter than the exit and reentry suits worn aboard the space shuttle, with the ability to let water vapor out yet keep air in. The new helmet and visor are integrated, the gloves are touchscreen-friendly to accommodate modern controls, and the joints are more flexible, letting the brave men and women who wear it move more freely.
