SpaceX CEO and all-around cool guy Elon Musk has finally unveiled the company's spacesuit via Instagram while teasing that more details should arrive in the next few days. Musk said that the suits have already been tested in "double vacuum pressure", (a spacesuit must maintain Earth-like pressure in the astronauts body, despite the lack of atmospheric pressure in the vacuum of space), although these suits are likely not meant to be worn outside the spacecraft.

Boeing unveiled its newest line of spacesuits in January, which are created to be used by astronauts at the International Space Station. And others are saying SpaceX's sleek suit looks more like a fighter pilot's than an astronaut's.
Meanwhile, some people may recognise the suit which resembles the infamous leaked SpaceX designs from over a year ago.
SpaceX to launch Taiwanese satellite, land rocket stage
An Earth-observation satellite for Taiwan's National Space Organization was launched into orbit from California on Thursday. SpaceX later discontinued the Falcon 1, moving Formosat-5 to a larger Falcon 9 vehicle.
Along with SpaceX, Boeing will also be sending humans into space.
Rocket man After successful rocket launches, SpaceX is moving forward with its plan to send astronauts past the horizon. Before that, SpaceX is planning to send humans into orbit using the Dragon spacecraft, and wants to send two human beings around the moon in 2018.
Both companies had a target date of Fall 2017 to deliver astronauts to the space station but these have since been pushed back.
