    SpaceX’s founder continues to reinvent the space business. Rockets are not only being launched more often, but they have become reusable. On Wednesday morning, Elon Musk, SpaceX’s founder, unveiled the companies' latest innovation – a modern, sleek and highly functional space suit.

    NASA has several projects for space suits creation in the works, but with the space program ramping up, some reports has indicated that there might not be enough suits.

    (Launches can pop up at anytime though, so check back often!)

    Regardless of production, SpaceX continues to innovate outer space exploration. Their Dragon manned capsule is set to launch by the middle of 2018, this could be when these new spiffy suits are put to use.

    The first space suit designs were started in the early 1950s. Since then they have varied in color, weight and manageability – but this new model could be the most drastic and modern move.
