The one on the right appeals to me more as an Areophile, but ... you know gravity is one third that of Earth. Unless you're hauling big rocks out of the Chasma, the only folks who would need an exo on Mars would be native Lunies.
Yeah it's true. I didn't realize how unnecessary the exo skeleton was until I got told by a friend. I really liked the idea of an astronaut suit with servos but guess mars isn't the best place for it. Thanks for the feedback!
Nice suit, Brostavia!! There is a built in exoskeleton in this space suit, right? So the astronauts have enhanced strength for lifting heavy objects, playing with rocks, or arm-wrestling aliens... ya' know, the usual stuff. The design reminds me of HULC (Human Universal Load Carrier). XD en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_Un…
Ha ha, cool. BTW, you heard that Voyager 1 has crossed out of the heliopause into interstellar space just recently? Very exciting news... this is why I set my browser to open to the NASA home page every time I open a new browser window.
Yeah, it is pretty remarkable... here's Centauri Dream's post on it. www.centauri-dreams.org/?p=290… I follow that blog to keep up on a lot of news like this- and if you go hunting in the older blogposts you'll find discussions of interstellar propulsion systems, interstellar probes, starship design studies from the 1970's, human factors on long-duration space voyages, all kinds of neat stuff.
It is amazing Voyager 1 is still working after all this time, it was only designed for a tour of the planets after all. Here's hoping that a interstellar precursor probe sent purposely sent to explore interstellar space won't be lagging too far behind Voyager- it has been over three decades now after all!! Too bad the TAU (Thousand Astronomical Units) probe wasn't built. We could have been there by 1987. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TAU_(spa… Voyager probes showed us our solar system closer up than we had ever seen it before, but I think we all want to see what lies beyond.

Excellent design and structure on this exo-suit model, this seems pretty legit just from the concept art. I take it the user wouldn't be able to use their abdomen to bend over for tasks, etc. Because I can see that being a challenge.
