      Obviously those are prototypes and we don't know what their budget is. The helmet could be a fish tank.

        The white part of the helmet is actually the cover of a kitchen bin (trash container) and was designed by a guy in Fiji according to discovery channel. They are working on the SOPs required, with the suits and equipment and shelters just being cheap (hence the bin lid) representations.

          NASA said them:
          "Boys, you will participate in a Mars project!
          (big hurray on the boys' side)
          But as the budget is low you have to bring your sunglasses and kitchen bin, etc... (some murmuring on the boys' side) oh yes and it won't be the Mars but the Earth..."

              You think that might stop them from taking more photos???

              Would be great, as you're completely right.
              "A platoon of Chinese tanks viciously attacked a Soviet harvester,
              which was peacefully working a field near the Soviet-Chinese border.
              The harvester returned fire and upon destroying the enemy
              returned to its home base."
