A quick follow-up to What is the power requirement of a spacesuit?
The Apollo 11 crew were in a vacuum out on Luna; their space-suits fulfilled the purpose of a basic space-suit about which Wikipedia writes to say
A space suit is a garment worn to keep a human alive in the harsh environment of outer space, vacuum and temperature extremes. Space suits are often worn inside spacecraft as a safety precaution in case of loss of cabin pressure, and are necessary for extra-vehicular activity (EVA), work done outside spacecraft. Space suits have been worn for such work in Earth orbit, on the surface of the Moon, and en route back to Earth from the Moon. Modern space suits augment the basic pressure garment with a complex system of equipment and environmental systems designed to keep the wearer comfortable, and to minimize the effort required to bend the limbs, resisting a soft pressure garment's natural tendency to stiffen against the vacuum. A self-contained oxygen supply and environmental control system is frequently employed to allow complete freedom of movement, independent of the spacecraft.
Colonization would probably require some manned missions to do the basic spade-work.
Say a manned mission heads out to Mars -
- Could the suits evaluated for Luna/Earth Orbit be used on Mars as-is?
- E.g. Orlan
Say the same, or another mission trots over to ... oh, Titan
- Could the Titan mission possibly use the suits designed/constructed for Mars?
Is it necessary to design/configure an EVA-suit for each type of Celestial atmosphere?
