Ted Southern and Nikolay Moiseev of ‘Final Frontier Design’ are in the process of revolutionizing space gear. Pressurized suits fit for galactic travel are notoriously expensive with the NASA variety coming in at millions. Southern and Moiseev have minimized the cost significantly while staying true to the uniforms authentic staples.

One of the topics that Final Frontier addresses is that of commercial space travel. Organizations like Virgin Galactic and Boeing are proposing to take paid customers on rocket trips, and given the lack of funding for such missions, the apparel required becomes that much more exorbitant.

The Final Frontier Design ensembles include helmets, pressure monitors and oxygen passageways, all NASA-endorsed features. The $10,000 price tag is anything but NASA-endorsed however, making voyage slightly more affordable.
