Pawelk198604 Posted May 5, 2016 Share Posted May 5, 2016 I know that all Soviet/Russian and all american spacecraft have their own life support system, and really astronauts and cosmonauts do not need those heavy and bulky space suits. But apparently every time the flights were without something bad happening, reportedly Soyuz 11 cosmonauts able to survive if they were wearing suits, the Russians believed that the life support system of the space capsule Soyuz is reliable, and can not fail, but it happened. Their Soyuz had air leak after I undocked from the space station Salyut. NASA astronauts also flown without the suits until the tragic mission of the space shuttle Challenger. I wonder if the space agencies someday again decide to abandon the IVA space suits? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
