NASA's Z-2 Suit is the newest prototype in its next-generation spacesuit platform, the Z-series. The surface-specific planetary mobility suit is the first to be tested in full vacuum. The prototype used 3D human laser scans and 3D-printed hardware for suit development and sizing. The suit-port concept is integrated with a hard upper torso suit structure.
The cover layer of a prototype suit is important as it serves to protect the suit against abrasion and snags during the rigors of testing. NASA is leaving the design up to you. Choose which of three candidates will be built. The deadline is April 15.
