Category:Pressure suits

English: A pressure suit is a pressurized suit worn by high-altitude pilots who may fly so high that even breathing pure oxygen at surrounding pressure would not provide enough oxygen for them to function. Pressure suits protect pilots from hypoxia, decompression sickness, extreme cold and other hazards, such as the so-called Armstrong’s limit: above 63,000 feet altitude any liquids inside and outside the human body will boil at 98 degrees Fahrenheit.
