In the video #AskNASA | What are the Next Generation Spacesuits?, spacesuit engineer Dustin Gohmert says the following about the Orion Crew Survival Suit (Orange Spacesuit):
This suit is also designed for contingency operations. If we had an emergency in deep space, the crew could actually survive in this suit and live for up to six days.
Could anyone explain what does the above statement mean? Does contingency operations refer to what to do in case of an accidental depressurization? If yes, how can an astronaut live inside a spacesuit completely for six days? Will there be provisions for water, food and other necessities inside the spacesuit itself?
