 Without money to make spacesuits, will the US plan to return to the moon in 2020?


Experts warn that the US plan to return to the moon may be delayed because astronauts do not have the right space suit to wear.

NASA is still using decades-old space suits, which critics say are too bulky to penetrate. Both Boeing and SpaceX are developing spacesuit for astronauts to wear in orbit, but NASA has been warned that the lack of suitable spacesuit may cause trouble for the return to the moons surface.

This is a serious problem, said Pablo Deleon (PablodeLeon), a spacesuit designer at the University of North Dakota. In addition to lighter, more flexible, easier to wear and take off, the latest spacesuit should also pressurize 8 pounds per square inch, thus shortening the prebreathing time.

Deleon said: NASA should solve these problems decades ago, but in fact it is not. In the early 90s of last century, the plan for the development and design of new spacesuits should be completed.

When astronauts took the Russian alliance spacecraft to the international space station, they wore Russian Sokol flight suits, replacing the space shuttles traditional orange spacesuit.

Boeing and SpaceX are currently working on their own unique space suits to carry astronauts to the International Space Station. For space walking, extravehicular activities (EVA), astronauts need space suits that provide pressure and breathability to prevent radiation damage.

NASA still uses the space shuttles extravehicular activity spacesuit, which was designed in the mid - 70s of the last century and used in the international space station, while Russian astronauts also took the same old period of extravehicular space on the international space station.

In 2017, an audit report warned that NASA did not prepare for future space missions. When the Trump administration of the United States planned to retire as early as 2024, the international space station would probably delay the development of new spacesuits. By 2024, NASAs lunar orbit space station is still under construction, and it is almost impossible to test the new spacesuit.

In fact, from now until 2024, NASA has been designing, manufacturing and testing the new spacesuit. A recent NASA audit report shows that there is little chance that the United States will return to the moon. It is understood that NASA plans to launch Exploration Mission 1 as early as 2020, which is the first test mission for Orion spacecraft and heavy launch rockets.

To land on Mars, NASA is currently developing a new Tron space suit designed for the first crew to land on Mars. This new spacesuit called Z-2 is printed by 3D, which makes it easier for astronauts to walk on the surface of Mars. Unlike the tight spacesuit worn by Matt Damon (MattDamon) in the Martian rescue, Z-2 allows astronauts to get out of the rear end of the spacesuit without entering the air lock. This spacesuit provides the greatest productivity of Mars landers on the surface of Mars. The US space agency says we are developing a new generation of spacesuit technology, which can be used in deep space exploration by using advanced technologies such as renewable carbon dioxide to remove systems and water evaporation systems. These systems can more effectively provide essential conditions for astronauts to breathe air and temperature regulation. The Z-2 spacesuit is a technical demonstrator of the planets surface spacesuit designed to maximize the efficiency of the astronauts on the planets surface - exploring and collecting samples, manipulating their habitats and landing vehicles. This spacesuit, designed with advanced composite materials, is a lightweight, durable spacesuit for long time exploration tasks on the surface of the Martian surface. It can adjust the shoulder and waist size to maximize the range of astronauts activities. In addition, NASA has announced two other spacesuit designs.
