"Protective vacuum garments go back at least as far as Edison's Conquest of Mars (1898), a fascinating mixture of prescience and poppycock.

"You're right - as it happens, I have those references. See "air-tight dress" and "aerial telegraph" from Edison's Conquest of Mars. I've been working on adding tags, which would solve part of the problem of finding things on the site, but it's taking a long time. "
