Mars Quest - Clothing:
"There are many different things that are on my space suit. There is a sunvisor form an original space suit that allows you to look at really bright lights. There are mini crio tanks to keep you cooled when you experience extreme heat on Mars when working. The suits are insulated with aerojell, a substance that will keep the cold out or the cold in (same with heat). There is most definitely an oxygen tank that connects to your back. There'a a new thing I made up. There are clampets on the boots. Whenever a wind storm blows through you push a button that is on the chest to make it stick into the ground to hold you in place. There are cameras on the arms and lights on the helmet."
