China's self-developed spacesuits have ensured the safety of taikonauts inside the space station core module Tianhe and while performing EVAs outside the module.
Intravehicular spacesuits, which are for astronauts to wear inside the spacecraft, ensure ventilation and heat dissipation of the taikonauts under normal circumstances and provide oxygen to ensure their safety once the spacecraft leaks. The extravehicular suit, like a small aircraft, provides safe and effective environmental protection, environmental control and life support for taikonauts when they work outside the spacecraft.
How do China's spacesuits ensure taikonauts' safety?
