A Cultural History
I guess if they needed Tin-Foil for the dinner casserole on the Jupiter 9, they knew where to get it.
Casserole was a pill on the Jupiter 2 wasn't it? Been ages since I watched an episode.
I've seen it claimed there are production pictures of the cast resting between takes with the tops of the silver costumes off because of heat, resting against angled boards because they were too stiff to sit in comfortably. Adding the vest and helmet must have made it almost unendurable.Later seasons had different, lighter costumes.
I`m just watching the 1998 movie right at the moment and one more for the "not a spacesuit but.." would be the suits briefly featured on the alien derelicthttp://digitalvideo.8m.net/Orion/lostspace.jpghttp://www.uncleodiescollectibles.com/img_lib/William%20Hurt%20Derelict%20Spacesuit%2003%2012-24-11.jpg
I'll give it another watch myself next times its on
They used these spacesuits on many films afterwards. I remember even the Osmond brothers wearing them while singing a song on one of their shows. Then a kid show in the 90's. Fox used them on other films and TV as well.
Cheers Rick, I think one of them pops up in the Star Wars Cantina if memory serves. If you find the names of specific shows, episode Ill see if I can pull together a gallery
