What Justin Bieber & Leo DiCaprio Will Wear on Their Business Class Flights to Space Next Year

What Justin Bieber & Leo DiCaprio Will Wear on Their Business Class Flights to Space Next Year

Richard Branson has just released the design for the new spacesuits that people flying Virgin Galactic flights into space will be wearing once the commercial space travel business launches in 2020; celebrities who have already purchased flight tickets to space include Justin Bieber and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Private astronauts intending to fly to space with Virgin Galactic, you can now get a look at the uniform you’ll be wearing as you explore the universe. The company just released a video showing the new uniforms, expected to debut with the first commercial space flights next year.

The uniforms were made through a partnership with Under Armour. They’re blue and include the full range of garments needed by astronauts: a base layer, the spacesuit, footwear, a training suit, and a limited-edition astronaut jacket.

“Spacesuits are a part of the iconography of the first space age; our visual impressions of human spaceflight and what astronauts wear are inextricably linked,” Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Galactic, said in a statement reported by Travel + Leisure. “Requirements for astronaut spacewear as we enter the second space age are evolving, but the design challenge has not diminished.”

Tickets for the first space flights cost a cool $250,000 and have already been purchased by a number of celebrities, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Justin Bieber. Every passenger will have their spacesuit tailored specifically for their bodies.

“I love the way the spacewear looks and I love the way it feels,” Branson said in the statement. “I also love the fact that the next time I put it on, I will be on my way to space.”

    If anyone was wondering, the human flight in that video is real and was done in a vertical wind tunnel. Check out your local indoor skydiving center to see people flying just like that.
