Here's the suit you'll be wearing on your trip to Mars
A new spacesuit unveiled by NASA could be the wardrobe essentials for a trip to Mars.
NASA said that elements from the prototype Z-2 spacesuit are going to be incorporated in the suit worn by the astronauts for their trips to Mars, the BBC reported.
Light-emitting patches and luminescent wire are used by the new spacesuit, which then could be customised to identify individuals.
The spacesuit will be built using 3D-printed parts, and 3D laser scans are going to ensure that each suit fits each astronaut perfectly.
