The spacesuit inspired by medieval armor, made for walking on Mars CNN

It takes Dr Gernot Groomer three hours to put on the spacesuit he hopes will, one day, walk across the surface of Mars.
It’s worth taking time when you’re wearing a suit made from roughly 10,000 parts, designed for the most treacherous environment yet to be encountered by a human being.
Groomer is the Austrian astrobiologist responsible for building a spacesuit for the Mars explorers of tomorrow — and he’s taking inspiration from armor worn by medieval knights.
He explains that — after the titanic effort required to get there — simply surviving on the red planet will be a grueling battle.
