I probably should bid excuse for reviving this thread after it's been dormant since the middle of December, but I know there once have been discussed bio/space suits, which Prometheus
' crew is clad in, so when I lucked upon the next pictures, I thought they would be interesting for someone out there to take a look at.
They go in juxtaposition of two films' photos:
The first half, as you can see, is the picture off Prometheus
, the next one to it is the image, taken out of Voyage to the prehistoric planet
(or source Russian film Planet of storms
) of 1965 (1961) correspondingly!
You can espy here the same transparent (glass-like) helmet with the solid base around the neck and at the back of the head area, more or less tight-fitting costume, waist belt with gears attached to it, chest plates... I find it quite stunning, that idea of snug space suit like this was unveiled so far back in time and is not new itself, I assume the difficulties of its implementation (lack of due material, technology, etc.) hampered the creation of the similar spacesuits in real life, maybe we will see them soon to be actually built
