The PLSS is what a moon-walking astronaut would wear on his back to provide the functions of the spacecraft life support system in a smaller, self-contained package. These include regulating suit pressure, providing breathable oxygen, removing carbon dioxide, humidity, odors, and contaminants from breathing oxygen, cooling and recirculating oxygen and water, sensing and reporting suit parameters, and providing communications for the suit occupant. It must be mentioned that pieces of equipment actually used out on the surface of the moon are incredibly rare and supremely desirable. This strap literally helped keep Bean alive by holding up his life support system during the two lunar EVAs.
