Space helmets!

Space helmets typically feature the same basic elements, but over the years different science fiction movies have managed to put their own unique stamps on the familiar design. As a tribute to this variety, Keith Melton has cut together helmets from a wide range of films into one short video — from modern movies like Moon and Sunshine all the way back to 1929's Woman in the Moon. It's a terrific way to look back at sci-fi cinema history, though as Melton points out, there are a few notable absences. He says that he forgot to include the likes of Serenity and Planet of the Apes, but there was one movie he left out on purpose — the 2009 reboot of Star Trek. Maybe the sequel will make its way into his next supercut.
