Blue space sute

A space suit from the Discovery 1.

Trivia[]

  • The blue spacesuit on the Discovery 1 - the only one that was never worn, in either 2001 or 2010 - was later used in the Babylon 5 episodes #1.20, "Babylon Squared" and #3.17, "War Without End: Part 2"
  • In the film version of 2010, the blue suit is missing its helmet - apparently because the filmmakers assumed Dave Bowman used it while disabling HAL onboard the Discovery. However, Dave actually used a green helmet, from the green suit which was stored inside the emergency airlock.
  • When mini versions of the spacesuits were made in 2017 for action figures, an extra suit (purple in color) was created. Bringing the total to six different colored suits: red (worn by Dave), yellow (Frank Poole), white (Clavius Base personnel on the Moon), green (stowed in the emergency airlock), blue, and purple.
