In yesterday's news Russia announced that it's going to Mars and doing so on a schedule (2030 to the red planet with interim moon missions 2016-2019) that rivals NASA's. Today the news has NASA showing off its new Mars spacesuits. Could a repeat of the 1960s space race be in the works? Talk is cheap of course, and government talk is bargain basement, but with Putin rattling sabers could the wheel of history be spinning into a reboot?

--------------
Here Putin--the current wild card of history--checks out the glory days of Soviet space exploration. He's got plans.


--------------
Here's NASA's new Z-2 spacesuit. Dig the pants.


--------------
Here, in lower light, it looks kind of cool in a Tron-ish sort of way. The luminescent wire can be customized to identify individuals.

The older Z-1 suit was named as one of the year's best inventions by Time magazine. It's being called the Buzz Lightyear suit for obvious reasons.

I think we'd see faster results if we just gave NASA and the Russians the Kerbal Space Program game and turned 'em loose...
