NASA has announced that it has awarded the contract for development of the Constellation spacesuits to Oceaneering.

Primarily a firm for deepwater drilling operations, Oceaneering also serves defense and aerospace, including space systems.

At left is an early NASA rendering of the suit that American astronauts will wear the next time they step out onto the Moon.

For a great, really detailed look at space suit function and history, check out the article from HowStuffWorks on the subject.
