The manned maneuvering unit is a one-man propulsion backpack that snaps onto the back of the space suit's portable life-support system. The MMU allows the astronaut to work outside without a tether. It is designed to provide EVA support for as much as six hours at a time. The MMU weighs 255 pounds and is propelled by nitrogen gas fed to twenty-four thruster jets.
