Space Suit (1956)

This image of the space suit of the future appeared in the 1956 book The Complete Book of Space Travel. For anyone that has ever been to the Minnesota History Center you may also recognize it as part of the space exhibit there.

Looks like the suits in 'Assignment Outer Space' starring the incomparable Rik Van Nutter, directed by Anthony Dawson ( a.k.a Antonio Margheriti) .

I like the suits in Voyage to a Prehistoric Planet (re-editted form of Planet Bur)
