NASA is unveiling its new spacesuit destined to bring astronauts to "infinity and beyond."

The new suit, bears a striking resemblance to a Toy Story character.

NASA just completed testing on its prototype spacesuit that's designed to help astronauts move easier on the moon, Mars, even an asteroid.

It's white and lime green and kind of looks like a famous Disney-Pixar animated character, don't you think?

We’re not sure if NASA intended it to resemble Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story.

This new suit, called the Z-1, is designed to be more flexible than the current spacesuit worn by astronauts.

What's also different about this new suit, it's got a rear-entry design, hoping to make it easier for astronauts on spacewalking missions.
