MIT Design  Innovative "Skin-Tight" Spacesuits Using Shape Memory Alloys

MIT Design Innovative "Skin-Tight" Spacesuits Using Shape Memory Alloys

Researchers from the MIT have succeeded in designing a skin-tight, pressurized spacesuit integrated with tiny, spring-like coils, which contract when heated. Shape-memory alloy (SMA) was used to create the coil. SMA is a material that can return to its original shape when bent or deformed. It has the unique property of “remembering” its original shape.
