Space Suit with a Hint
Orlan-MK space suit

Next ISS crew will be equipped with new computerized space suits Orlan-MK, says head of the research and development centre of Energia corporation.
      Next spacewalk is scheduled for June 2009, and new space suits with special panel, displaying hints for cosmonauts during extra-vehicular activity will be of great help.
      ISS dwellers now use previous version of space suits called Orlan-M, which will be refit into science-and-research satellites or destroyed.
      Next ISS crew will arrive to the station on March 26, 2009. Forty-three scientific experiments are on the list, and five of them will be performed for the first time ever.
