Commander Melissa Lewis' (Jessica Chastain) original EVA spacesuit

Melissa Lewis' (Jessica Chastain) EVA suit from Ridley Scott's sci-fi survival drama The Martian. Lewis wore her extra-vehicular activity (EVA) suit when operating the Manned Maneuvering Unit during the Hermes mission to rescue Mark Watney (Matt Damon) from Mars. The EVA costume was based on a version of a NASA suit used for moving outside the International Space Station, and created by costume designer Janty Yates, Scott's long-time collaborator. Yates and Scott have worked together on a number of sci-fi films, including Prometheus and Alien: Covenant.

The suit is constructed primarily from a white synthetic material and comprises a helmet; a black-and-white skull cap; a torso with a backpack and GoPro camera housing attached; a pair of trousers; a set of gloves with rubber fingertip and palm detailing; and a pair of boots with rubber-sole crampons. The helmet is made of white metal and features a clear plastic front, a functioning faux-gold sun visor, and lights on either side. The helmet is labelled "7" within. A chest pack is adhered to the torso and has a metal rig secured to the bottom. Orange-and-white "Lewis" insignia Velcro strips are attached across the suit. The skull cap displays a label on the inside reading "Ladies Stunt". Fitted to the helmet and chest pack are electronic components that allow them to illuminate with LEDs. The helmet is powered by a 12V lithium-polymer battery inserted into the backpack, and would have been activated by an external remote control. A 9V battery can be fitted into the chest to light up the blue LED digits on the front.
