Out of the Blue

Best of luck to the astronauts, SpaceX and NASA as they make another attempt at launching astronauts to the International Space Station today. The launch is expected at 3:22 pm EDT, and you can watch live coverage on NASA Television. There are concerns the weather could once again cause the mission to be scrubbed and pushed off until tomorrow. If it does go off, it will be the first launch of astronauts from American soil in almost a decade, and the first time in history that a private company will put astronauts into space.

I like the Boeing spacesuit much better than the SpaceX one.

I'm curious why you like it better. I don't have an opinion one way or the other. Here are the SpaceX ones for comparison.

don't know about cutter's reasons, but with the spacex ones the neck doesn't articulate and the helmet is tight fitting, so to look around they have to turn their whole bodies. the helmets may look cool but functionally they're a failure.

Yeah, but on the other hand would you pick anything made by Boeing where you life depended on it? ^^
