|All you actually need to be protected from vacuum is just a really tight fitting 4-way stretch body suit with encased silicone expansion pockets to fill in those "void" areas such as armpits, back of knees, and um, crotch. Much simpler than a complicated pressure suit, the body suit concept was proven on human "volunteers" in altitude chambers back in the 1950's. (Thermal protection, that's another story.)|
