We have several of these EVA Suited replicas on display at our Science Centers across the country.

    EVA (Extra Vehicular Activity) suits are used in space when astronauts need to go outside of their protected environment. To explore and work in space, human beings must take their environment with them because there is no atmospheric pressure and no oxygen to sustain life. Highlights of an EVA include the refueling, retrieval, and repair of satellites, and the assembly of the International Space Station. EVA suits have demonstrated the ability of humans to work effectively in the harsh environment of space.

We have several of these on display
at our Science & Technology Centers

 
     Inside the spacecraft, the atmosphere can be controlled so that special clothing is not needed. But in order to work outside, humans need the protection of a spacesuit. Humans must wear suits that supply oxygen for breathing and also maintain a pressure around the body to keep fluids in their liquid state.

EVA suited Astronaut in Space     A spacesuit also protects the astronaut from small meteoroids and insulates the wearer from the temperature extremes of space.
   Without the Earth's atmosphere to filter the sunlight, the side of the suit facing the Sun may be heated to a temperature as high as 120 degrees C. The other side, exposed to darkness of deep space, may get as cold as -160 degrees C.  Astronaut during an EVA
   The EVA suit's life support system also has to remove the heat and moisture generated by sweating astronauts. This is done by circulating cool water through an undergarment worn next to the astronaut's skin. 

High Altitude Suit     The first US space suits were adapted from pressure suits designed for pilots of high altitude military and experimental aircraft.
