SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk just gave us another look at the company’s new space suit and, as you’d expect, it looks pretty damn sci-fi. 

Musk revealed the new look at the suit in an Instagram post on Friday, writing, “Astronaut spacesuit next to Crew Dragon.” 

Shown positioned next to one of the company’s spacecrafts, the suit is fairly minimalist, but is notable for its sleekness in contrast to bulky NASA spacesuits of years past.

Last month, Musk gave us our first peek at what the suit would look like while an astronaut is in transit. He was careful to note that the suit is not a mockup, but an actual working suit that has been “tested to double vacuum pressure.”

This is what happens when the founder of Tesla has a hand in designing spacesuits – suddenly, space gets even cooler.
