New research at MIT is being invested in the development of new space suits for the future of space exploration. These new suits will be more like a second skin than the bulky radiation containment-esque suits of yesteryear. But more than just form fitting they will be more functional as well; and that is where the true benefits lie.
Design & Trend states that the purpose the second-skin Bio Suit is to provide astronauts with not just more comfort but more choice in mobility. It actually custom fits to each person according to their body shape using crazy technology which contracts when heated.
