Anything Else?

Abstract

Space is a vacuum. To survive there, humans need a pressurized vessel which maintains an Earth-like atmospheric pressure of 1 bar—a space capsule. And those who want to leave the capsule require a space suit equipped with a life support system and a pressurized atmosphere. At the same time, the space suit needs to be mobile and dexterous enough for an astronaut to be able to work while wearing it.
