SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy launch was successful, exciting, fun and it proved that the company knows their stuff. Now there is even a Starman driving his Tesla Roadster around the Earth. Yes, you read it correctly. A dummy sits behind the steering wheel of Tesla Roadster and cranks Bowie’s Starman. In case you still don’t believe me, you can check the footage yourself.

But why? SpaceX dressed the mannequin in the official crew flight suit. During the press conference that took place after the launch, Elon Musk clarified that the spacesuit is real rather than a cheap imitation. SpaceX revealed the same suit in an Instagram post last year and it is cruising in the outer space for the first time ever.

Musk states that astronauts that would be on the board of Crew Dragon will wear the very same outfit. The Crew Dragon capsule is said to send real humans into space. The initial launch is going to happen later in 2018 if everything goes as planned. SpaceX engineers developed, designed and delivered the spacesuit as we see it. Undoubtedly, it looks cooler than any other spacesuit the humanity had ever seen. However, Musk admitted that it was a challenging task to create both functional and good-looking clothing.

The suit comes quite stylish in fact. It combines black and white, thick lines, and out-of-a-sci-fi-movie helmet. But it’s not all about the looks. NASA has approved its functionality, durability, and quality. Therefore, the Starman is not only cruising around space for fun. He is testing the suit in real conditions and in Musk’s own words it works as it should. “You can just put it on and jump in a vacuum chamber.”
