New NASA Spacesuits Look Exactly Like Buzz Lightyear

Buzz Lightyear NASA

NASA revealed their new spacesuit – the Z-1 Prototype Spacesuit and Portable Life Support System (PLSS) 2.0 – and we can’t help but think this new outfit was inspired by ‘Toy Story’s’ own Buzz Lightyear. Are our astronauts headed to infinity and beyond?

This new spacesuit will be easier to put on than previous version (astronauts will be able to slip in and out, just like they do in the movies), is more flexible allowing for a wider range of motion and will have its own airlock. But the one feature that will stick out for most people is that it looks a lot like Buzz Lightyear.

Whether NASA will change their name to Star Command remains to be seen.

Right now, the Z-1 is just a prototype and NASA continues to fine-tune the spacesuit, already working on the Z-2.

For what it’s worth, NASA’s Z-1 spacesuit was named one of Time Magazine’s “Best Inventions of 2012″…even if ‘Toy Story’ did it first.
