Z-2 Spacesuit: NASA Releases Futuristic Astronaut Suit Design Photos (Photo Gallery)

March 24th NASA released photos and information about a new futuristic suit design known as the “Z-2 Spacesuit”. The suit is one of the most mobile spacesuits ever created and is expected to be used in missions as soon as 2016 according to NASA.

The suit has a functional Buzz Lightyear like appeal and of course is equipped with a life support system. Unlike clothing the suit is not worn but rather entered into from a rear-entry hatch similar to how you’d enter a spacecraft.

Check Out the images of the Z-2 Spacesuit from Space.com.
