Do you have a secret desire to dress like an Astronaut on one of NASA's shuttles?
Maybe you're wanting to dress up for Halloween, for a play at your local community theater . . . or just because. Well, first, you'll need to determine what you'll be doing in that suit. (Even if that activity is only in your own imagination!)
Will you be blasting off into space, orbiting the earth, or taking a little space walk? You really need to know this before you select your costume, because that will determine which color you should select.
The main colors used for these special NASA uniforms during the shuttle program were blue, orange, and white.
Different colored space suits ones were specially designed and constructed to serve different purposes.
On this page are some examples of each of the three familiar shuttle uniform colors, and how each was used.
