Republic Moon Suit
Repsuia
Repsuia
American pressure suit, tested 1966. This was a Republic Aviation design for a hard space suit for extended operations on the lunar surface.

Status: tested 1966.

It was very popular in Life magazine in the 1960's -- and coincidentally resembled a suit from a Republic Pictures serials of the 1940's.

The man seen modeling the suit was Robert Morris. He was working as a consultant and technician for Republic Aviation on Long Island in the 1960's while at the same time starting a manufacturing business. The photo collection here was provided courtesy of his son.
