Recently, the CEO of SpaceX has shared the very first images of the spacesuit which is actually developed by SpaceX it self for NASA as a part of commercial crew program. Moreover, the CEO of SpaceX also praised the functionality and aspects of this new SpaceX spacesuit.
Here Is The First Picture Of SpaceX Spacesuit
The billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk published on his Instagram account the first photograph of the space suit that SpaceX designed for NASA. Under the Commercial Crew Overview, the company provided this design that tries to blend good taste with safety.
He had already announced a few days ago through his Twitter account and now he fulfilled his promise showing these first images of the innovative product that hopes to collaborate with space travel of the future.

In 2015 Musk commented in Reddit the first advances of his ideas in space, including aspects of this new suit, assuring: “I am Elon Musk, CEO/CTO of Zip2, PayPal, SpaceX, Tesla, and SolarCity. Started off doing software engineering and now do aerospace & automotive”. Also added later “We are putting a lot of effort in the aesthetics of the design, not only in the utility”.
An equipment that pays tribute to the classic astronauts and is designed for space walks, although at first, its purpose is the Commercial Crew Overview of NASA, which will test the aerospace craft of various companies in the industry, sending people Towards the International Space Station.
As part of this same program, the Boeing company – dedicated to the manufacture of aircraft, helicopters, missiles, and satellites – also created its own clothing, but unlike SpaceX, the design was not only theirs, since it was associated with Specialist in space suits David Clark Company.
It is hoped that the Musk company will later use this equipment in its Red Dragon project, which will begin with an unmanned capsule – which SpaceX intends to send to Mars in 2018 – which would be the start of the colonization they want to accomplish on that planet in 2026.
Moreover, the billionaire Elon Musk stated that more pictures will be arriving in the coming days. So, it is worth noting that Elon Musk is himself wearing the spacesuit and it truly works and it is very clear that it’s not a mockup.
