Each year, Mythbusters' Adam Savage builds a costume to wear on the floor of Comic-Con. This time he built two spacesuits inspired by 2001: A Space Odyssey, he and invited Great Canadian and actual real-life astronaut Chris Hadfield to join him.

"Chris, have you ever worn a fake spacesuit before?" Savage asked him in a video of about their Comic-Con walk."No," Hadfield said.He's also never been to Comic-Con before.

"Chris, have you ever worn a fake spacesuit before?" Savage asked him in a video of about their Comic-Con walk.

"No," Hadfield said.

He's also never been to Comic-Con before.

The suits were, of course, perfect.

They even had an integrated cooling system to ensure Savage and Hadfield wouldn't collapse from heat while walking around. "Everyone remembers I almost got heatstroke last year," Savage said.

The pair filled the cooling system with ice to get it ready.

Savage also made replicas of the space lunch boxes in the film for them to carry.

Time to suit up!

And pack lunches.

Hadfield loved that Savage made him a sandwich with pickles."No pickles on a space station, " Hadfield said.
