An astronaut is urging NASA to form new spacesuit program

Here's an article from Business Insider in this regard:

https://www.businessinsider.co.za/astro … ing-2019-9

That was the crux of a message by former astronaut Sandra "Sandy" Magnus to a NASA gathering in Houston, of safety experts. Mentioned also was the present condition of the now 40+ year old EVA suits onboard the ISS; old and deteriorating.

I couldn't find anything about spacesuits in the Space X careers section but there are plenty of interesting open posts.

This goes back to the balloon suits which were not problem free and still did not pertect the individual wearing it as seen from the toes and fingers from the past apollo lunar missions.
