The Andromeda Strain (1971)

The Andromeda Strain is the 1971 American science-fiction film based on the novel by Michael Crichton.
The film is about a team of scientists who investigate a deadly organism of extraterrestrial origin that causes rapid, fatal blood clotting.  It's also very good.
There's not any actual spacesuits in the movie, however these two hasmat suits are quite interesting and have every possibility of having cropping up elsewhere in the capacity of spacesuits
Of course it would be an oversight not to point out that the actor there is James Olson, he who has worn a spacesuit or two in the always popular with me; Moon Zero Two.



  1. AH HA! That is where that helmet came from. The helmet seen in the first two photos is also used in Titan Find!

    1. Well spotted Sir. I'll update both blogs at some point very soon. I knew I knew it but not from where. There appears to be at least 3 space helmet designs in Titan Find and its too cheap a film to have made any of them. Come on everyone; lets play find the Space helmet.

  2. I'm going to continue the Titian Find conversation on the Titan Find post. to avoid confusion.
