NASA Unveils New Artemis Spacesuit!

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine and Others Demonstrate New Artemis Spacesuit – It’s Unisex and The First Woman on the Moon Will Be Wearing One!

Vice President Mike Pence took some flack when he cut four years off of the deadline for the Artemis mission back in April. I gave him some myself. It does, after all, seem rather reckless to simply shave four years off of a major mission deadline. Many speculated that politics played a major role in the decision, and it’s easy to see why. After all, 2024 would happen to coincide with the end of a second term for the current administration. However, one thing that I and many others did give the vice president credit for was his vocal commitment to putting the first woman on the moon and making sure that we’re the ones to do it. Now NASA has a new generation of spacesuit that will accommodate any astronaut. Regardless of gender.

Here’s a video demonstration:

Previous Trouble With Space Suits

NASA itself also took a lot of flack earlier this year when plans for the first all-female spacewalk were thwarted by the lack of an appropriately fitting EVA suit. Women like astronaut Christina Koch do EVAs as part of a regular rotating schedule. Thus far, however, there hasn’t been an all-female EVA team, and the spacesuits are to blame.

It appears NASA took the problem seriously, and it appears that they are serious when it comes to working toward gender inclusivity and equality. The new Artemis spacesuit will ensure that gender won’t be a barrier to space travel anymore. Upwards and onwards, as they say, and godspeed, ladies!
