Next Generation Space Suit

[YouTube - Link]
Sometime this year, Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner will attempt to break Joseph Kittinger's record by free falling from 120,000 feet above Earth, breaking the speed of sound along the way. The David Clark Company and a team of experts (including Kittinger) have all worked together the past three years to develop a suit that will sustain and protect Felix during his attempt this summer. This video has a neat summary of the ongoing project.
