    SpaceX will be revealing their astronaut suits some time next year. The proof can be had in this video at 12:13 minutes in. The company working on the suit is Ironhead Studios.

    This is awesome, thanks for sharing.

    My first thought at seeing the thread was that we'd have little baby dragons getting out of the capsule (like my son's Halloween costume), but after watching this and seeing some of his work, I think the suits are going to be amazing. These guys and gals are going to look like superheroes stepping into and out of the rocket capsule.

    That's awesome! Can't wait to see it. I'm sure it was an interesting collaboration between engineering and design.
