Talk about life imitating art?! Looks like NASA are set to go to infinity. And beyond.
Well, NASA have revealed their latest spacesuit, the Z-1 Prototype Spacesuit and Portable Life Support System (PLSS) 2.0. And it looks very familiar…
and we can’t help but think this new outfit was inspired by ‘Toy Story’s’ own Buzz Lightyear. Are our astronauts headed to infinity and beyond?
The suit, according to Screen Crush, ‘will be easier to put on than previous version (astronauts will be able to slip in and out, just like they do in the movies), is more flexible allowing for a wider range of motion and will have its own airlock. Whether NASA will change their name to Star Command remains to be seen.’
Right now, the Z-1 is just a prototype and NASA continues to fine-tune the spacesuit, already working on the Z-2.The Z-1 swas named one of Time Magazine’s “Best Inventions of 2012″. We’re just wondering if the suit was designed by a few Pixar fanboys and girls.
Toooo infinity… and beyond!
