Space is awesome. But what's more awesome is NASA chose to take a whole new approach to space suit design. Yup, you guessed it, NASA's going clubbin'! Well, not really, but we're happy to announce NASA has decided to use Electroluminescent materials into the design of their space suits! These conceptual images show NASA's intent and you have just under 30 days to vote for your favorites. By November 2014, NASA expects to have a working prototype of our favorite suit. There are 3 suit designs that you get to vote on, drawing inspiration from our Earth and cultural background.
