Washington: A new spacesuit that bears a striking resemblance to the spacesuit worn by Buzz Lightyear in ' Toy Story' could be the wardrobe essentials for a trip to Mars.

NASA said that elements from the prototype Z-2 spacesuit are going to be incorporated in the suit worn by the astronauts for their trips to Mars, the BBC reported.

Light-emitting patches and luminescent wire are used by the new spacesuit, which then could be customised to identify individuals.

The spacesuit will be built using 3D-printed parts, and 3D laser scans are going to ensure that each suit fits each astronaut perfectly.
