The full focus of the US space agency NASA is on its Artemis mission of 2024. Under this mission, NASA is once again preparing to send its Astronauts to the Moon. This ambitious mission of NASA is also special because the Space Agency is going to land a woman on the moon for the first time. The spacesuits of the astronauts of this mission will also be very special, which will provide them protection in extreme environments outside Earth.
Putting on and landing a spacesuit worn in space is extremely difficult. A CNN report quoted Megan Marples as saying that it takes up to four hours to wear these space suits. He said that these suits are worn with the help of someone and after wearing they are checked very carefully. When astronauts walk in space, they are constantly in touch with the scientists of the earth.
The spacesuit will have 16 layers
According to NASA’s report, a spacesuit can have up to 16 layers and it is in 6 parts. The space agency has named the suit worn for the astronauts of the Artemis mission the xploration extravehicular mobility unit or xEMU. It will be checked on the International Space Station before the moon.
A special part of this spacesuit is the cooling garment, with the help of which the body temperature of the astronauts will be kept constant. Richard Rhodes, deputy lead of xEMU pressure garment development, gave this information. This time the space agency has also taken special care of the gloves of the astronauts.
NASA spent $ 300 million
There will also be a life support system in the spacesuit, in which the accessories of the cooling garment and other things will be present. A separate colored strip to identify the astronauts and a radio system for communication will also be installed in the spacesuit. According to Rhodes, NASA’s priority is the safety of astronauts while wearing spacesuits, and the space agency has spent $300 million to build them.
