SpaceX Unveils Advanced EVA Spacesuit for Polaris Dawn Mission 2024

Explore SpaceX’s new EVA spacesuit with enhanced mobility, HUD technology, and safety features for the upcoming Polaris Dawn space mission.

SpaceX, led by Elon Musk, showcased its latest extravehicular space suit on May 5, local time Saturday. Designed for the “Polaris Dawn” manned space mission, the launch is planned no earlier than the summer of 2024.

During a five-day mission, crew members will perform SpaceX’s first extravehicular activity (EVA), commonly known as spacewalking, from the Dragon spacecraft. This event marks a historic milestone as it will be the first commercial astronauts to perform a spacewalk, exposing all four astronauts to the vacuum of space simultaneously.

The new space suit, an evolution of the Intra-Vehicular Activity (IVA) suit currently worn by astronauts on Dragon missions, has been enhanced for mobility. Developed with innovative materials, manufacturing techniques, and joint designs, officials state it offers increased flexibility under pressure while maintaining comfort when depressurized.

Additionally, the suit features a 3D printed helmet with a new visor to minimize glare during EVAs and is equipped with an upgraded Heads-Up Display (HUD) and camera, displaying vital information such as suit pressure, temperature, and humidity levels.

Structurally, the suit includes seals and pressure valves that improve reliability and redundancy during spacewalks, ensuring that it remains pressurized and safe for astronauts.
