Z-2 design chosen

1 May, 2014

Technology, the futuristic sci-fi inspired suit, wins the public’s vote as the next design. Of the 233,431 votes, 63% chose this option. The suit features Luminex wires and patches that illuminate. The light patches will allow for easier crew identification. The suit also features upgrades for flexibility and safety, with long missions in mind. The Delaware company, ILC Denver, will collaborate with students from Philadelphia University to create a prototype. The prototype will be ready by November 2014.
