On Wednesday, Virgin Galactic and its founder Richard Branson unveiled the new designs for its space suits, which were provided by Under Armour and designed to be worn on private space missions.
As part of the reveal, the company featured a science fiction-themed cat walk performance in New York, which included zero gravity simulations in which models wore the suits.
Additionally, the company posted a video of the display.
Kevin Plank, the founder of Under Armour, was also on hand to talk about the suits, which include special boots in addition to the suit itself.
“Virgin Galactic gave us an exciting challenge to build the world’s first commercial spacesuit,” said Plank.
“Innovation is at the core of everything we do and our team delivered a unique twist on the classic spacesuit utilizing both existing and new UA technologies to define space gear for the future. It is an incredible opportunity to showcase our key performance innovations in space at the highest level and continue to push the limits of human performance.”
That fact that these suits look extremely Star Trek will be a welcome sight to fans who grew up hoping that one day private space travel might be as cool, and fashionable, as it has been on TV and in film.
