Nasa has finalised the look of its newest spacesuit, thanks to a public vote.

The US space exploration agency revealed this week the prototype Z-2 spacesuit which sports a hard cover-layer with glow-in-the-dark patterns, similar to those seen in sci-fi movie 'Tron'.

Future variations of this suit will be used to allow astronauts to explore the surface of Mars.
