SpaceX CEO Elon Musk once again showed off the company’s astronaut flight suit, but this time offering a the full view beside one of the company’s spacecrafts.

The suit was first unveiled by Musk to the public in an Instagram post late August. It showed him wearing the suit while sitting beside what appears to be a window of a spacecraft.

Musk may have been sitting inside the Crew Dragon spacecraft, shown in this most recent Instagram update.

Now that a full view of the suit is available, it further proves earlier feedback that the design indeed differs from what astronauts wear today. It has a very minimalist look, being more like something a biker would wear—except that it can help a person survive in the vacuum of space for a few minutes while looking stylish. JB
