I grew up in the 60s and 70s and was an avid follower of the US manned space program from the Gemini launches on. My impression has always been that the donning and doffing of a spacesuit is a complicated and potentially dangerous business that has to be done carefully and methodically. I was also under the impression that they typically had water-cooled underwear etc.
In “Gravity”, however, Sandra Bullock seems to get in and out of spacesuits faster and with more ease than I experience getting ready to go outside in the winter. And she’s only wearing shorts and a tank-top underneath them.
Have spacesuits developed to the extent that this is realistic or is has the director taken some artistic license so that he can move the story along more easily?
