NASA Shows Off Next Generation Spacesuit

Robert Markowitz/NASA(WASHINGTON) -- NASA astronauts may soon be wearing white and green suits -- similar in appearance to the one worn by Toy Story character Buzz Lightyear -- into outer space.

The Z-1 spacesuit prototype will shorten preparation time, improve safety and boost astronaut capabilities during spacewalks and surface activities, according to NASA.

Photos of the suit were posted to Flickr.
