Offworld: Spacesuits in Science Fiction Film

Ariel is joined by two spapcesuit afficionados: our very own Adam Savage and design professor Nicholas de Monchaux to talk about their favorite science fiction spacesuits, the role of spacesuits in film, and how real-world suits have been inspired by fiction.

  1. Is there a chance that we could have an other printout of the space suit book (meaning that we can buy it new instead of pre own. With the 50th anniversary of the moon landing I think it would be appropriate.

  2. It may not be a “space” suit but I would love to see an episode that touches on the stillsuit from Dune. The Mobious concept art to the actual costumes would be fascinating. It also might be cool to compare and contrast the different takes on the stillsuit and possibly Adam’s take on a stillsuit.

  3. Another fascinating episode. I could have listened to them talk for hours, and it seemed like they would have been happy to as well.

  4. If you look at how many space suits there are, and how many people there are, it kind of makes sense to build a space suit then go find people who fit in it. (Sorry about that diversity.)
