The difference between orange and white astronaut suits

What spacesuit colours mean – and the surprising things hidden inside them

Astronauts wear different-coloured suits, depending on the job at hand. This interactive image explains the difference – and what's hidden inside, such as knives, life-rafts and nappies.

Correction: The particular orange suit pictured above is a pressure suit worn by a high-altitude pilot on Earth, not an astronaut. While the design features of the two types of suit are very similar, we apologise for the error.
