space suit

This is a thick suit of white plastic, bendy at the joints, hard at other places.  It’s totally enclosed, with its own air supply.  It has a clear plastic helmet.  You can wear it to go out in space, or on the surface of a planet, moon or asteroid which has no atmosphere.

We practised using a space suit during our training.  I won’t say I enjoyed it, but I didn’t feel as clumsy in it as I expected.  Most people prefer a bubble to a space suit when they have to work in space.
