Chinese Spacesuit Analysis

This presentation provides an overview of the Chinese Feitian EVA Spacesuits that were used in 2008 as China became only the 3rd nation to perform EVA.  An overview of the Chinese spacesuit and life-support system were assessed from video downlinks during their EVA and from those assessments, spacesuit characteristics were identified and compared against the Russian Orlan Spacesuit (extremely similar) and the U.S. Extravehicular Mobility Unit (EMU).
