In fact, Musk added that the suit has already been tested to double vacuum pressure, though building a suit with both the aesthetic appeal and functionality was no easy feat.

In a post on Instagram today (Aug. 23), Musk revealed an image of a person sitting in what looks like a spacecraft cabin, wearing a bright white-and-silver spacesuit.

As part of his quest to launch crewed missions to and from the International Space Station and beyond, Elon Musk has shared a pivitol development in the form of new spacesuits.

Meanwhile on Thursday SpaceX launched the first satellite designed and built entirely in Taiwan, a spacecraft that aims to boost disaster forecasts and mapping, environmental observation and space research.

Xbox One's Minecraft beta has long requested mouse/keyboard support
Microsoft announced via their support Twitter page that they are aware of the outages, and are now investigating. In layman's terms, this makes the Xbox One X 40 percent more powerful than Sony's Playstation 4 Pro.

SpaceX, along with Boeing, was also awarded a government contract to develop vehicles ready to take astronauts to the International Space Station in 2017, though that could now be delayed due to 2019.

In the post, the renowned billionaire entrepreneur wrote, "Worth noting that this actually works (not a mockup) ... incredibly hard to balance esthetics and function".

According to The Verge, the SpaceX space suit won't be used on spacewalks, but instead "worn by astronauts during transport in case the capsule depressurizes". SpaceX has also announced it plans to send two private citizens on a trip around the moon. Hopefully, SpaceX can clue everybody in on how it balanced design and function.

Boeing, maker of the Starliner space capsule, unveiled its minimalist "Boeing Blue" spacesuit in January.
