    Another thing to add to the list of “things Elon Musk can afford to do”: hire the Tron Legacy costume designer to create the look (if not necessarily the functionality) of SpaceX’s in-house spacesuits. [LINK]

    Movie spacesuits almost always look better than their real world counterparts. That’s probably why SpaceX has tapped legendary costume designer Jose Fernandez to develop their own in-house spacesuits.

    You’ve likely seen Fernandez’s work before: He’s responsible for designing costumes in Batman v Superman, Oblivion, Tron: Legacy, The Avengers, Iron Man, Jupiter Ascending, and quite a few others. He knows his way around the sorts of costumes that are functional, but which also look cool.

    Elon Musk has previously noted design is going to be a priority for their own astronauts, and that he wants it to look ‘badass’.

    That great…but I also want to be successfully breathing oxygen the whole time too, yeah?

    Didn’t the design of the diver suits from The Abyss get real scuba suit designers to hire the movie’s designer? I thought I had read that someplace.
