How Much Does A Spacesuit Cost? Why Do Astronauts Need Space Suits?

  • How Much Does A Spacesuit Cost? Why Do Astronauts Need Space Suits?

    2:37

    Why does a spacesuit cost $12,000,000? You will find the answer in this video. A spacesuit is more than clothes astronauts wear in space. The suit is really a small spacecraft. It protects the astronaut from the dangers of being outside in space.


    An astronaut suit does cost a fortune. It’s approximately 12 million US dollars. However, you can say that it’s expensive, but really, the suit is worth every penny. It weighs 21 kilograms and comes built with several costly materials and diverse layers. It also takes years to make a single suit.

  • Why Spacesuits Are So Expensive | So Expensive

    10:41

    NASA's current fleet of spacesuits was built in 1974, and each was reported to cost between $15 million and $22 million. Today, that would be about $150 million. Having not built any new mission-ready extravehicular suits since then, NASA is running out of spacesuits. In fact, NASA is down to just four flight-ready EVA suits. Since 2009, NASA has invested more than $200 million in spacesuit development, recently unveiling the xEMU prototype for its Artemis program, which plans to take humans back to the surface of the moon by 2024, with a view to eventually go to Mars. With that goal fast approaching — and the number of existing spacesuits dwindling — NASA engineers face a new kind of space race. Meanwhile, commercial space company Final Frontier Design is developing its own EVA spacesuits and plans to build new units at much lower costs than NASA. So, why has it taken so long for new spacesuits to be built? And what makes them so expensive?

  • How do spacesuits work? | James May Q&A | Head Squeeze

    4:13

    You've seen the videos of those astronauts on the International Space Station getting suited and booted in a spacesuit before a spacewalk, but how exactly does the space suit work?

    A spacesuit has to protect you from the glaring radiation from the sun as well as keeping you warm from the extreme cold of outer space. As well as that is has to make sure you have enough oxygen and enough movement so you can actually do your job.

    It also has to be pressurised to about 4.7PSI. Otherwise the empty vacuum of outer space will make your organs increase to twice their normal size and you will meet a very unpleasant untimely death.

    Don't fancy building your own spacesuit, why not build an elevator into space?

  • 10 Really Amazing Things About Spacesuits

    3:17

    Here are 10 really amazing things about spacesuits.

    The suits worn by astronauts as they zip and float through space are fascinating garments, and not just because they’ve been out there in the vast unknown.
    Here are 10 really amazing things about spacesuits.
    Number 10. They’re time consuming to put on. Donning one takes up 45 minutes, and even then the suit isn’t ready for out-of-module adventures. Wearers have to adapt to the lower pressurization in it, and that requires spending about an hour taking in pure oxygen. 
    Number 9. The suits are white for a very good reason. Just like here on Earth, the color helps fend off heat and keep the body cooler. The stakes are much higher in space, though, as there the sun’s rays can reach up to 275 degrees Fahrenheit. 
    Number 8. Spacesuits are unisex. The only difference in the ensembles worn by males and females is size. 
    Number 7. They’re made of steel and cement. Well, partially, anyway. Also involved are some neoprene-coated nylon, spandex, and high-strength composite materials. Those that can be sewn together are. Some, however, require stronger and more durable construction means. 
    Number 6. Dangerous malfunctions can occur. About 2 years ago, the helmet of an Italian astronaut out on a spacewalk began to fill with water, nearly drowning him. The cause was identified as a clogged filter, and the astronaut’s survival was attributed largely to his cool-headed handling of the crisis. 
    Number 5. The material has some serious heft. It’s comprised of 11 different layers. Combined, they measure nearly a quarter of an inch thick. 
    Number 4. Moon walking and spacewalking suits are different. The ones made for the Apollo missions had big boots designed especially for trudging around on the rocky lunar surface. Unlike those made for previous spacewalk-only endeavors, they also came equipped with internal life support systems, allowing for untethered exploration. 
    Number 3. NASA’s working on a new one. Among the prototype’s notable features are folds in the fabric that make mobility easier and a more durable upper torso area. There are also lighted patches, which are intended to help astronauts identify the other crewmembers. 
    Number 2. There’s a special waste compartment. Because bathrooms can be tough to come by in space, the suits contain a special receptacle that stores bodily waste.
    Number 1. A temperature-control garment is worn beneath them. It looks like an old-fashioned union suit, but is actually a very advanced piece of equipment. Running throughout it are cooling tubes of water. They help maintain body temperature, even when the heat is in the triple digits.
    What do you think is the most fascinating fact about spacesuits?

  • Why Astronauts Wear Orange and White

    10:16

    The bright orange color astronauts wear to go out for launch is called International Orange, and it’s the same shade as the paint that coats Tokyo Tower in Japan, and the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. However, once astronauts are in space, they swap orange for snow-white wear. So what gives with the different colors?

    Well, there are actually two main types of spacesuits. The first one is the Advanced Crew Escape Suit, aka the orange suit, aka the pumpkin suit. Astronauts wear this full-pressure suit during lift-off. These spacesuits are crucial for those who are heading for super high altitudes. But still, why this color? And what about the white, bulky spacesuits? What's their purpose?

    SUMMARY:
    - The orange suit is equipped with different stuff that can help an astronaut to survive if something goes wrong during the launch or landing of the spaceship.
    - Astronauts wear EVA suits when they go on a spacewalk! Such an outfit can protect them from the unfriendly conditions of outer space, what with its extreme temperatures and near-vacuum!
    - In case the tether tears, the EVA suit has a backup system. This system includes small jet thrusters which can be controlled from the station with the help of a joystick.
    - Months after coming back from long missions in space, astronauts still tend to let go of things while they’re still in mid-air.
    - There was an astronaut who’d been waiting for a whopping 19 years before he finally flew to space.
    - All American astronauts have to learn Russian to be able to run the International Space Station using Russian-language manuals, if there’s no alternative.
    - During space adaptation, 50% to 75% of astronauts have highly unpleasant syndromes, such as vertigo, headaches, nausea, and overall tiredness.
    - When astronauts are in space, they often see random flashes of light - and it's not hallucinations!
    - Before going to space, astronauts have underwater training, which is supposed to simulate zero gravity.
    - According to NASA, they accept only 8 applicants out of 6,000! On top of that, the selection process takes around 18 months!
    - If an astronaut cries in space, tears don't flow down their face. Instead, they gather into thick blobs of liquid around their eyes because the water surface tension holds tears together.
    - Astronauts who forget to attach themselves to something when they sleep can easily float away and bump into a hard surface.
    - Astronauts see a sunrise and a sunset every 45 minutes, which totals 15-16 sunsets and sunrises each day.

  • How Astronauts Make Oxygen in Space from Their Bodies

    9:27

    Sending 1 lb of cargo into space costs about $10,000! So how do space agencies afford to send supplies like oxygen, water, and food to their astronauts? Before they found a more efficient solution, they’d pack all the water into space with them in their rockets. The water took up a lot of room that could’ve otherwise been used for other supplies. That, and the added weight wasted fuel. So short answer: nope, it doesn’t go with the crew from the get-go.

    That means they deliver it, right? That’d be too risky…and expensive! There’s no 100% guarantee that something bad won’t happen to the cargo ship at launch or on the way to the International Space Station. If the cargo doesn’t get to the station, then the next delivery will have to wait a very long time. That’s not an option since it’s dangerous for the astronauts. Ok, so let’s break it down item by item.

    #ISS #astronauts #brightside

    SUMMARY:
    - The primary source of water for the crew is… the astronauts themselves! Whether it’s drops of sweat, condensation from breathing, or going to the toilet, all this water gets processed through complex filtering systems.
    - Thanks to this complex system, it’s possible to produce a little over 4 lb of oxygen per day. That’s only enough for 2 people. The ISS crew usually consists of 6. To make up the difference, oxygen is delivered from Earth.
    - What about the food? Here, the ISS is entirely dependent on supplies delivered from Earth. All those freeze-dried packets of astronaut food go along with the crew when they head to the station, or separate cargo is sent.
    - According to NASA, astronauts dine on fruits, nuts, chicken, beef, seafood, candy, and even brownies! They also have coffee, tea, juices, and lemonade.
    - In 2015, members of the 44th ISS crew ate lettuce that was fully grown on board! The seeds had been sent from Earth.
    - Just like you and me, astronauts have garbage too. You’d think they could just chuck it out into the endless void of space, but that would be littering! Whenever they get a delivery, the cargo ship is docked to the station.
    - Just like you and me, astronauts have garbage too. Whenever they get a delivery, the cargo ship is docked to the station. The astronauts get what they need from it, and then they load this ship with their trash.
    - The cool thing about the International Space Station becoming more and more self-sufficient is that it’s almost like a trial for larger missions in the future.

Understanding our past from the extinction of the Dinosaurs to our present day with the pursuit of Mars colonizations, we must now seriously consider species insurance - through the lens of scale and affordability for all humankind.

    Cameron M. Smith, PhD, of Portland State University’s Department of Anthropology began his career excavating million-year-old stone tools in Africa. However, Dr. Smith’s current quest is to put humans into space with low-cost, DIY methods, and Icarus Interstellar’s work on multi- generational voyaging to exoplanets. In recent years Dr. Smith has presented his concepts at NASA, NASA/DARPA, the Mars Society, SpaceX, the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, TEDxBrussels, OMSI and Copenhagen Suborbitals.

  • Could You Make a Space Suit Out of Duct Tape? Wearing a Duct Tape Glove in a Vacuum Chamber!

    10:32

    In this video I cut a hole in my vacuum chamber to test out what gloves could be used in space. I put my arm through the hole in the glove to test out several gloves then finally test if a glove strengthened by duct tape could hold in the pressure when in space! Then I test if duct tape could be used to repair a ship in space by taping over the hole I made in the vacuum chamber and seeing if it holds up under full vacuum.

    Elon Musk has always looked at space flight differently, including SpaceX's space suit design. Jose Fernandez has designed suits for several Super Heroes such as Batman, Wonder Woman, and Black Panther. NASA's eight suit requirements for SpaceX's commercial crew contract are as follows:

    1. Structural pressure testing to verify the ability of the suit to maintain structural integrity with appropriate factors of safety.
    2. Leakage testing to verify the suit leak rate.
    3. CITL vacuum chamber testing for the full cabin depressurization duration.
    4. Performance testing to verify the suit’s ability to washout carbon dioxide from the suited subject’s oral nasal region.
    5. Pressurized and unpressurized mobility testing with a suited subject to demonstrate that the crew can perform required tasks in-flight.
    6. Suit donning testing to verify the crew can don their suits without assistance and within the time required to support the SpaceX concept of operations, in a representative 1-g environment.
    7. Acoustic testing to verify the acoustic attenuation of the suit helmet.
    8. Interface testing to verify the suit interfaces properly with other Dragon hardware, including seats, restraints, and umbilical connections.

  • NASA Prepares to Explore Moon: Spacesuits, Tools

    3:58

    Preparing to explore the surface of the Moon goes well beyond designing and building safe spacecraft and spacesuits. NASA also has to ensure the surface vehicles and suits have the mobility required to do science, and that astronauts have the tools they need to identify and scoop up rock and soil samples. Additionally, NASA astronauts are trained in geology, spending countless hours practicing doing science at locations on Earth that resemble regions they might see on the Moon. All this is done in an effort to establish a long-term presence on the Moon and to help answer some outstanding science questions about the history of Earth and of the solar system.

  • NASA is running out of spacesuits and it could jeopardize future missions

    2:03

    A new government audit reveals that NASA is running low on spacesuits and new ones might not be available in time.

    Astronauts have been using the same suits since 1981. The suit were only designed to last 15 years, but NASA was able to extend the lifetime during Shuttle era by returning the suits to Earth for regular repairs.

    Without the Shuttles, NASA has no way or returning the suits so they are kept on the space station. And recent incidents show that these suits are well past their due date.

    The biggest problem is the primary life support systems, which are the large backpacks that astronauts wear during spacewalks. In 2013, one of the units malfunctioned while an astronaut was in space.

    First Italian astronaut, Luca Parmitano, had a leak in one of the units that supplied water water to the suit. The water spilled over into his ventilation, which caused his helmet to start filling with water.

    By the time he reached safety back on the station, over a liter of water had filled his helmet, entering his mouth, ears, nose, and eyes. Ultimately, he was unharmed.

    In recent years, NASA has had 2 other water-related incidents, though not as severe as Parmitano’s. Today, only 11 of the 18 life support systems are considered safe to use. But those units may not even last long enough.

    NASA plans to continue sending astronauts to the ISS to at least 2024. These astronaut will need safe, functioning spacesuits to perform spacewalks that are critical for maintaining the space station. The main concern is that the remaining 11 life support systems will not last to 2024.

    Over the last decade, NASA has invested nearly $200 million toward developing new and better spacesuits. However, because NASA's budget and missions mainly rely on government funding, its focus has changed numerous times over the years from Moon-focused to Mars-focused.

    And since different environments in space require different types of spacesuit protection, it was impossible for the space agency to stick to just one spacesuit design.

    As a result, NASA divided its funding across three companies: $135.6 million toward the Constellation Space Suit System, $51.6 million to Advanced Space Suit Project, and $12 million for the Orion Crew Survival System.

    None of the three companies have had enough funding to complete and develop a new spacesuit, yet. The report recommends that NASA develop a formal plan that fits their immediate needs. It also suggests that NASA determine if current spacesuit designs can meet the agency’s needs, or if next-generation suits are necessary.

    The clock is ticking. NASA has already scheduled 17 spacewalks between now and 2020.

  • Why Astronauts wear Spacesuits.????‍????????

    35:56

  • Astronauts can: wear eight-legged spacesuits on the moons of Mars.

    1:33

    Astronauts can: wear eight-legged spacesuits on the moons of Mars.

    When the first astronauts arrive on Mars in the 2030s, they will not set foot on the surface of the planet. Instead, NASA wants its brave human crew in orbit around the desert world for about a year, and then return home. But that does not mean that astronauts could not explore Phobos or Deimos two small and intriguing Mars moons.

    Lockheed Martin, a company that is building NASA's Orion spacecraft, recently presented a tempting arena for an exit mission: Put astronauts into an eight-legged, rocket-propelled space suit that can crawl, walk or Jump on the surface of a moon. We call it the Spider Walker pamphlet suit, Timothy Cichan, the Lockheed engineer who runs the company's Mars Exploration Planning, Business Insider. The new spatial concept is detailed in a white paper on the company Marte Campo Base architecture, which sent a representative to Business Insider.

    Cichan says that the concept of Spider brochure arose from the need to keep the proposed mission to Mars from Lockheed Lean: Although NASA has a mandate to send people to Mars by 2033, and make innovative science in the process, Congress will give the agency Space budget from a relatively limited budget to work terminates. With the construction of a small space suit instead of a larger landing module, thought goes, NASA could save thousands of dollars in pounds and millions of dollars and return home with unprecedented samples of a strange world.

  • Why do astronauts wear white suit? | விண்வெளி வீரர்கள் ஏன் வெள்ளை உடையை அணியிறார்கள்? | Explained.

    7:29

    Astronauts use white spacesuits when they go on spacewalks to do work outside the space shuttle or International Space Station. White was chosen for a few reasons. One of the most important reasons is that white reflects heat so that the astronaut doesn't get too warm. Astronauts can get too cold as well, but that is usually in their hands. Therefore, the spacesuits have heaters in their gloves.

    Another reason spacewalkers use white spacesuits is that white is visible against the black background of space, so other astronauts can easily see the spacewalker. In addition, since spacewalking astronauts always go out in pairs, one of the suits always has red stripes in four places so the other astronauts can tell one spacewalker from the other.

    Inside the spaceship, astronauts get to wear clothes more like those you wear every day, and they can even help pick the colors.
