WE have no suit that will ever go through the VAN ALLEN belt, hey Nasa- why didn't you just reverse engineer those spacesuits of tape and polyester the Astro-nots wore the last time they were at the moon huh? Fuck me, another black budget pay day.

Reminds me of the anecdote about Russia asking after the Chernobyl incident if they could use the suits from Apollo, which miraculously were able to do what NASA admittedly still cannot do to this day by not only making it through the VAB's, but surviving spacewalks for hours on the exposed lunar surface during a time of increased solar flare activity and random, deadly bombardments of GCR's. Not to mention the unpredictable pelting of the lunar surface by smatterings of micrometeoroids, a fraction of the size of a pinhead, traveling at thousands of miles per hour.

So NASA had to politely refuse to help Russia.

Also, LOL at anyone who doesn't think SpaceX is just more obtuse hoaxery b.s. just like NASA.
