Earlier this month, NASA officially completed testing of the Z-1 prototype suit, which is designed to afford astronauts more mobility during missions as well as the ability to quickly get in and out using a rear “suitport.” Previously, images of the prototype suit focused on the rear design, with the front helmet portion appearing consistent with older versions of NASA spacesuits. But these new images show off a look that is so reminiscent of Buzz Lightyear that it’s hard to imagine that the designers weren’t somehow influenced by the popular film. Now all that’s missing is a jet pack with wings and a laser gun that doesn’t really work.
