What are your characters wearing these days, in space and once they get to their destination?

davaI was reminded by a G+ post, by Ralph Roberts, of the brilliant Dava Newman and her recent appointment to NASA.  

When writing Sci-fi, think about what your characters are wearing, in space.  I had viewed a TED presentation by Dava Newman, of her work, on EVA design.  It was such a valuable visual for me during a recent series I wrote called Kulcin’s Law, avalable on www.Offworlders.com.  These were the suits I envisioned my astronauts were wearing, becasue I wanted them to move effortlessly and not have to explain getting in and out of their EVAs.  Below is Dava’s TED talk.
