Re: New suits are a necessity
"smaller, stronger and durable", as you say - just what a spacesuit needs to be. Your comments inspired me to do a quick google search for nano and spacesuit, and I was disapointed to see that at this point, as least as far as easily obtainable public information is concerned, it seems that this is still in the speculative phase. But, not only speculation, but also serious research being backed by serious money at the best academic and corporate labs. I think it be a classical case of the initial seed being planted by the military and the government, and as soon as it starts to bud, even bigger money from industry will start to flow in, with earth (and space) shaking results.
