Need for Spacesuits
With the development in technology and the growth in space travel, it was essential to develop pressurized flight suits for the pilots to adjust to the low atmospheric pressure and lack of oxygen at high altitudes. Mostly, these suits were designed to be used only when the cabin pressure failed.
Outer space, though very fascinating and luring for man, is very hostile to him. It is almost impossible to step outside a spacecraft with no or very little atmospheric pressure and oxygen. A space suit enables man to do so. However, without a spacesuit, man could suffer from the following:
Let us see the basic requirements, which a space suit must satisfy
