  1. I have yet to watch The Expanse, but after seeing this i found that Amazon Prime has Season 1 and not I’m Hooked. Thank you Adam!

  2. Re-watched season 1 the other day. Unfortunately wednesdays are a terrible time for me but I can’t wait to see season 2.

  3. It’s nice how they convert other helmets in to space helmets. But, the lights inside a face mask always scream “Your watching a Movie” to me.

  4. It would make it pretty tough to see out of a helmet visor. However it would almost be a necessity in a society that spends so much time in space suits – otherwise how would you see the face of the person you’re talking to without blinding them with lights?

  5. Lights inside a helmet make it impossible to see out unless you are in a very well light environment (like a movie/tv set). It would be like trying to look out your bedroom windows at night with all the lights on in the room. It’s why no real space helmet have lights on the inside.

    Agreed.
