Major changes have taken place in the costume of astronauts during this time. Travelers are now wearing more flexible clothes for traveling instead of shirts that are difficult for body movement. As NASA prepares for future space missions, astronauts may soon be wearing more stylish clothing for space travel.
The BBC reports that luxury fashion designer Prada is also involved in designing spacesuits for astronauts to wear on NASA’s 2025 lunar mission. Reporting. Italian fashion brand Prada has partnered with Axiom Space to design a space suit.
Axiom Space said in a news release that Prada’s expertise in apparel and manufacturing will be leveraged.
Prada is a globally popular fashion brand. Here, Prada’s sartorial expertise, which shines on various fashion platforms, is being utilized for spacewear creation.
Prof. Prada, who has participated in various missions of NASA, said that Prada’s experience in different types of fabrics can make a technical contribution to the construction of the outer layers of the space suit. Jeffrey Hoffman said.
However, he said, don’t expect to see astronauts looking fancy like fashion models. The basic nature of the space suit needs to be ensured. Hoffman said the spacesuit is a miniature version of the spacecraft and must ensure the necessary pressure, oxygen and temperature.
Axiom Space launched the spacesuit used for the Artemis 3 mission earlier this year. This 55 kg suit is also suitable for female passengers.
Prada will be involved in the design of the clothing used for the Artemis 3 mission, which is slated to launch late next year or early 2025. For the first time, a woman and an Afro will be part of the Artemis 2 mission.
