Imagine a time when humans set foot on most of the galaxy’s planets, with even more to explore. This exoskeleton spacesuit coincides with this ultimate dream and our unstoppable quest for space exploration!
Venturing beyond the realms of planet Earth comes with its unique set of challenges. The effects of gravity being at the top of the list. NASA has spent a great deal of time and effort developing new age space suits to counter the effects of gravity in hostile environments. 14 years to be exact, and it has already cost them $ 420 million. The space agency is expected to pay an additional $ 625 million for the next lunar mission, initially scheduled for the year 2024.
This deadline is now expected to drop to April 2025, as the development of the space suit has been delayed slightly. Even Elon Musk has offered his Space X services to help NASA develop the next generation spacesuits that will cost more than $ 1 billion, more than the cost of the Falcon 9 orbital rocket. generation is still a mystery, but a futuristic exoskeleton spacesuit gives imagination to my wings.
This breathtaking spacesuit is the work of designer Riyahd Cassiem who merges the cool element associated with exoskeleton suits with interplanetary dreams in which we humans are embedded. The Exo Suit Concept has a definite influence on the Halo game – one can instantly identify with the fearless characters KAT-B320, CARTER-A259 and ALICE-130. The reinforced suit is designed for the most difficult situations, and the mechanical nature means that it will help the wearer to perform arduous, if not too tedious, tasks in alien environments. Of course, it’s made from a lightweight but stellar material for ultra-flexibility, which is crucial.
I can’t help but draw a parallel with the influence of the fencing helmet in the design of Riyahd’s space suit. This thing seems quite fit for a future where space travel will be the norm. A time when we have defeated the roadblocks that currently limit us to freely explore the surface of the red planet Mars, or our closest destination – the Moon!
