New Suits for Commercial Crew Astronauts on This Week @NASA

January 27, 2017: When NASA’s Commercial Crew Astronauts make their first trip to the International Space Station aboard Boeing’s Starliner spacecraft, they’ll be outfitted in new custom-designed spacesuits. Astronauts Eric Boe and Suni Williams tried on the new suits, which were unveiled Jan. 25. In addition to meeting NASA’s requirements for safety and functionality, the new design weighs less and is more comfortable than earlier versions.
