#FedFeed – NASA unveils new spacesuit

Welcome to the #FedFeed, a collection of federal ephemera gathered from social media and presented for your enjoyment.

NASA unveiled a new spacesuit this week. It was designed by Boeing for use on its Starliner spacecraft, which astronauts will use on missions to and from the International Space Station. Here’s a video showing it off:

It’s been met with general interest and approval across the internet, though some have raised questions about where Boeing got the inspiration. A classic sci-fi movie perhaps?

For those in need of a little culture, the image on the right is a blue version of the spacesuits in Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 movie, “2001: A Space Odyssey.”

Or maybe they drew their inspiration from something more whimsical?
