Space Suit History

Spacesuits, which are an extension of underwater suits, have a long history in both fiction and real life.

Project RHO has a pretty interesting pictorial history of the spacesuit that includes a bit of both fact and fiction.

The page includes photos from NASA and illustrations from the pulp magazines. It’s a pretty interesting read, too. The website has several pages dedicated to various topics such as future history, artificial gravity, sidearms, and more.
