The success of astronauts in performing Extra Vehicular Activity (EVA) is highly dependent on the performance of the spacesuit they are wearing. Since the beginning of the space shuttle program, one basic spacesuit design was evolving. The Space shuttle Extra Vehicular Mobility Unit (EMU) is a waist entry suit consisting of a hard upper torso (HUT) and soft fabric mobility joints. The EMU was designed specifically for zero gravity operations. With new emphasis on planetary exploration, a new EVA space suit design is required. Now, research scientists are working hard and striving for the new, lightweight and modular designs. Thus, they have reached to the red surface of Mars. And eventually the astronauts will reach the other planet too. This paper is a review of various types of spacesuits and the different fabric required for the manufacturing of the same. The detailed construction of Spacesuit is discussed here. To know more,
