This episode of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum’s “What's New in Aerospace?” series featured insight from NASA Deputy Administrator Dava Newman about how spacesuits have changed in design and mission over the decades. The first astronauts flew into space wearing flight suits that had been adapted to their specific spacecraft. As subsequent astronauts started to travel outside the spacecraft, spacesuits have become more tailored and versatile. Spacesuit designers still face constraints. The suits have to fit into the spacecraft and be comfortable enough to allow meaningful work outside of our world. The “What's New in Aerospace?” series is presented in collaboration with NASA.
