While it's far from the first attempt at a new and improved spacesuit, this so-called BioSuit from a team of researchers at MIT is certainly a lot more fashionable than some suits we've seen, not to mention a whole lot more manageable for the person wearing it. In addition to giving the astronaut greater movement, the BioSuit also promises to increase safety (with punctures able to be quickly patched), and give the wearer a workout through the use of varying resistance levels. Of course, it'll still be earthbound for quite a while, although the researchers say it should be ready in about ten years or so, potentially making it a candidate for the first human expedition to Mars.
