Luca’s Russian spacesuits

ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano explains what Russian spacesuits he is trained to use for his Volare mission to the International Space Station.
Named after birds of prey, the Orlan and Sokol suits protect Luca from the vacuum of space.

"Space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-boggingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the street to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space." - The Hitch-Hikers Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams 1952 - 2001
