SpaceX spacesuit revealed by Elon Musk

US army soldier manoeuvres the robot— Hermes-—into a cave to detect mines traps and other unexploded ordnance as well as weapons or equipment possibly hidden by Taliban or al Qaida fugitives in the eastern border town of Qiqay Afghanistan

The stylish SpaceX suit is in keeping with the Dragon's touchscreens and comfortable bucket seats, which may have been designed similarly to Musk's Teslas.

"Worth noting that this actually works (not a mockup)", Musk wrote on Instagram, where he debuted the image. According to Musk, the suit is capable of withstanding twice the pressure of the vacuum of space, based on testing that has been done.

The suits have been developed for NASA's Commercial Crew Program, Musk noted in a tweet over the weekend.

The Verge was the first to spot the photo.

The spacesuit is meant to be worn by NASA astronauts during future missions aboard SpaceX's Dragon Capsules to the International Space Station and back. The current crewless Dragon capsule is used for resupply missions of cargo only to the International Space Station.

Musk promises more pictures of the SpaceX suit soon.

Houston, we have a new spacesuit!

This is the first picture of a spacesuit from SpaceX, the aerospace company owned by Elon Musk.

SpaceX is in a race against Boeing to make history by becoming the first private company to complete that sort of mission. They may have been closer to the truth than they thought, as the spacesuit might well have been inspired by a comic book aesthetic.

In conjunction with NASA, SpaceX will begin launching astronauts to the ISS in June 2018. The Orion spacesuit, which is a modified version of ACES, went through a chamber pressure test earlier this summer.

Boeing and SpaceX have each been developing a crew-worthy spacecraft for years.
