US space agency NASA has been showing off the wardrobe essentials for future astronauts looking for a new outfit for their first flight to Mars.
NASA said the Z-2 spacesuit was only a prototype, but elements of it would be incorporated into the suit worn by the first humans to reach the Red Planet.
The suit uses light-emitting patches and luminescent wire that could be customized to identify individuals.
The “technology” design beat two others with 63% of a public vote of 233,431.
