Biosuit back view
For use in space, the BioSuit must deliver close to one-third the pressure exerted by Earth's atmosphere, or about 30 kPa (kilopascals). That's about 50 percent more than the current prototype can exert consistently, though the researchers say new models have ranged up to between 25 and 30 kPa.
