Astronaut Suit

Astronauts working in the vacuum of space require a multi-layered suit designed for comfort, utility and protection from the harsh environment of space. Special outer gloves, boots and helmet are also needed. A life support backpack is worn to provide cooling, oxygen, and communications for the suited astronaut.
