The 'Suited for Space' Exhibit Shows the Inners of a Spacesuit

It's not every day that you get to see the inner workings of one of NASA's most precious items, but at the 'Suited for Space' exhibit, the inner workings of a spacesuit are revealed. Located at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C., the x-rayed spacesuit is a one-in-a-lifetime look at the inner workings.

The x-ray vision shows that the spacesuit is made of both aluminum coils and tubes that would seem like an oddly heavy choice until you think about the weightlessness of space and it becomes clear. The entire 'Suited for Space' exhibit is there for viewers to be able to see the evolution of the spacesuit and how technology has improved it.
