Mu Space, a Thailand based satellite and space company has unveiled a 3D image of its futuristic and sleek spacesuit. The company which plans to fly its first space tourism clients by 2021, is also planning to develop a 5G-powered Internet of Things (IoT) product like smart apparel to collect historical health data to be used in medical diagnosis.

Its future IoT product tests will be carried out at IoT Institute inside of Digital Park Thailand, a technology hub which will be built on a 960,000sqm land in Sriracha in the eastern province of Chonburi.

The next generation spacesuit technology of Mu Space will ensure safer environment for the company’s space tourism clients. The ‘OO mission’ spacesuit, according to Mu Space, will also offer astronauts with maximum mobility to manoeuvre a lunar rover, collect samples, and walk around the moon’s rocky surface.

Based on the 3D image, Mu Space will develop a spacesuit technology that incorporates several advancements, including a helmet visor with a head-up display, a touch-screen wrist display, and an embedded exoskeleton.

“The spacesuit will look and function a lot more advanced than those we see today. It’s lightweight, but durable to withstand harsh conditions in space. And as you can see, the design is inspired by Iron Man,” said Mu Space CEO and founder James Yenbamroong.

“The spacesuit needs to keep the wearer safe. It needs to give protection from freezing cold, micrometeorites and radiation. It has to supply enough oxygen and remove carbon dioxide. The spacesuit also needs to be lightweight, compact and flexible to wear,” James added.

James also said the ‘OO mission’ spacesuit is still in the design stage, and that the actual spacesuit will likely be a bit different than what has been unveiled.

The company still has three years to develop the actual spacesuit before the company flies its first space tourists in 2021, it said in a press release. (KD)
