In the Moscow NPP Zvezda, new spacesuits for working in outer space are being tested.
The current "Eagles" are similar only in appearance to their ancestor, the "Berkut" spacesuit, in which Alexey Leonov first went overboard 50 years ago.
As far as equipment is concerned, a modern spacesuit is almost a one-person spaceship with an autonomous control and life support system.
Boris Mikhailov, a veteran of the Zvezda NPP, Gennady Glazov, the chief specialist of the test department of the Zvezda NPP, and cosmonaut Alexey Leonov talk about spacesuits.
