We know that you recently lost your space shuttle program, but is this for real NASA? The stuff of childhood fantasies, NASA reveals their latest renderings of their latest spacesuit, which - yes - actually does exist and - yes - it actually won a public vote as part of their latest design challenge. Oh, and yes, they also do glow in the dark. Bringing together what we love about Buzz Lightyear, Halo, and Halloween, the new spacesuits from the Z-series line are still in the prototype stage, but they are completely operational with materials in place to protect astronauts from temperatures, radiation, and micrometeorites. Let us know what you think of what the minds over at NASA came up with after seeing the rest of the preview shots after the jump.
