Like it matters. I was under the impression that NASA wasn't doing any more manned space missions anyway due to funding. Will we be putting these suits on monkeys?

I guess as long as it does the job better than the last suit.

I'm pretty sure the last thing NASA engineers are thinking about is how cool it'll look lol.

see, in real life they actuallyhave to function in space. Also technology isnt advanced enough to compact everything in such a small suit

NASA let social media decide over the design?

Meh all that matters is safety, mobility and functionality. Who the FUK cares what it looks like? It's a tool for science, not a fukking singlet for the gym you bunch of phaggots. If you want to see some hot cool dudes, I suggest you go over the the gay section of the misc (1/2 threads).

The problem is that some people in general don't see the use for things like funding NASA and even question why we should fund basic scientific research.

i'd rather say fuk some other country's aid and put another half cent on the dollar to nasa. in the long run those poor countries would benefit. maybe send condoms instead of millions in aid and actually allow nasa to continue to be the basis of inventions and findings that help the majority of the world.

Maybe if we weren't burning so much money on entitlement programs to people too lazy to work (and thus actually generate tax dollars instead of leeching off them) we could put more money towards worthwhile endeavors such as space exploration.

Only hope humanity has is getting out of this solar system. All hope in humanity is literally lost. Thanks Obama.

I know I'm bumping a thread that's a couple weeks old, but it's worth noting that they're not actually going into space with these suits. They're intended to be a training prototype. They'll be designing another new suit to actually use. I know that sounds dumb, but they do do a lot of technical training in a giant pool, so that's what these will mostly be used for.

Long term perhaps, but in the more immediate term, our only hope is lunar/asteroid mining and mars/lunar colonization, as well as learning to live long term away from any gravity well.

Idiocracy. Srs.

People these days would rather fund kim ks new wedding then another moon mission.

Only hope for what? We get out of this solar system and then what?

I assume he meant interstellar travel. Resources in this system are finite, so if we're going to continue to grow as a species in the far future, we'll need to achieve interstellar generational travel before we exhaust the resources of this system.

This is very forward thinking though. Obviously this solar system is the immediate concern.
