Civilian buys spacesuit, wears it out in the world

Tim Dodd bought a spacesuit, and used it to create awesome images of an astronaut doing everyday things like mowing the lawn and ironing.

In November of last year, Tim Dodd bought a spacesuit from a Russian auction site. On Tuesday, he posted a series of images on his Instagram account entitled "A day in the life of Everyday Astronaut," depicting himself wearing the spacesuit while he goes about daily activities.

While these activities might not involve floating around sans gravity in a space station far away, you'll get a chuckle out of seeing a man in an orange space suit mowing the lawn, walking the dog, and getting a cone from the local ice cream shop. So grab some Tang and some of those Dippin' Dots ice cream bags and check out the full set of images on Imgur.
