SpaceX pressure suit mockup (Instagram elonmusk) Elon Musk revealed Wednesday the first image of the spacesuit that astronauts flying on the crewed version of the company's Dragon spacecraft will wear. In an Instagram post early Wednesday, Musk released the image of upper part of the suit, white with black accents. Musk said the suit pictured is an actual flight model, not a mockup, and has been tested to "double vacuum pressure." He said he will release more images of the suit in the coming days.
