Elon Musk a lifelong space enthusiast with degrees in physics and business has done it again from disrupting the automotive market by introducing us to the future of mobility a few years back, now he is ready to change the space travel business. After the success of the reusable Falcon 9 rockets and the Dragon capsules developed by SpaceX they have have re-designed the spacesuits which an astronaut wears during his journey in space. Earlier these spacesuits were only developed by NASA but now looks like SpaceX is here to change the game.
If you look at the SpaceX suits they look futuristic and way ahead of time. It took SpaceX nearly 3-4 years for the development of these Suits. They are designed and developed in-house by the SpaceX engineers, each custom-tailored suit is meant to provide a pressurized environment for all crew members aboard Dragon in a typical situation like cabin depressurization. The suit also routes communications and cooling systems to the astronauts aboard during regular space flights.

On 30th May, 2020 SpaceX became the first private company to launch people into orbit, a feat achieved previously by only three governments: the US, Russia and China. Falcon 9 blasted off with two Americans on Saturday, ushering in a new era in commercial space travel. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (Nasa’s) Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken rode skyward aboard a white-and-black, bullet-shaped Dragon capsule on top of the Falcon 9 rocket, lifting off at 3:22pm from the same launch pad used to send Apollo crews to the moon a half-century ago.
For Elon Musk, the launch represents another milestone for the reusable rockets his company pioneered to make spaceflight less costly and more frequent.
