(Newser) – It's time for Tron. NASA has announced the results of a public vote for its next-generation spacesuit design, and with more than 60% of 200,000 votes, the "Technology" option won. NASA says that it's "laser-focused" on heading to Mars and that this new Z-series of spacesuits will help determine what astronauts will live and work in on the Martian planet one day. But of course, what's hard to ignore is that this suit looks like the get-ups from the Tron movies.
