SpaceX's brand new flight suit has been revealed by Elon Musk on Instagram.

Looking more at home inside the cockpit of a Formula 1 car than in space, the suit is intended for use within the Dragon capsules rather than on EVA. Musk claims it is vacuum rated, and while it will likely contain a small amount of life support it will not be used for operations outside the spacecraft (EVA) as it lacks thermal management and maneuvering capability.

It's exciting to see designers taking aesthetics into account with commercial spaceflight. The classic NASA suits have a distinctive utilitarian look, but for the private sector the cool factor is important for selling space travel.
