Hey costume fans, here’s a costume riddle for you:  What’s dressed in a white spacesuit that has flaming neon green trim and is topped off with a ginormous domed helmet?  Buzz Lightyear, right?  Eh…not so fast.  It does seem, however, that our ol’ Toy Story buddy Buzz has inspired someone over at NASA.  The newly engineered Z-1 spacesuit looks shockingly like Buzz Lightyear!  The Z-1 spacesuit may be ready for “Infinity and Beyond” as well with all sorts of techy features that are designed to make an astronaut’s space life much easier--such as a rear entry port designed for docking with space stations and space shuttles.  (Plus, we’re assuming when you gotta go, you gotta go…but that part wasn’t actually discussed.)  The Z-1 spacesuit is still in its prototype phase, but obviously we are giving the whole look a big thumbs up!
