2001 A Space Odyssey (1968) Silver

Lets make a start then.
What we're looking at here is your standard spacesuit as seen in multiples through the first half of Kubrick's movie masterpiece.
It's a lovely space-age silver with a white helmet and blue chest and back units.  They're mainly seen at the excavation of the moon monolith and again over a few establishing moonscape shots.
They've influenced several generations of imitators and become almost the industry standard for the fictional spacesuit.
We'll be back with more words and more colours.
