space cadet n. 1943 A. L. Zagat Sunward Flight in Super Science Stories Feb. 98/1 That hatch may open again, however, at your word, to return you to Earth. I rest it on your honor as space cadets that if it should, what I say to you now will remain within the hull of the Aldebaran.
suit n. 1931 N. Schachner & A. L. Zagat Emperor of the Stars in Wonder Stories Apr. 1215/1 By this time he had donned the suit; only the helmet was not yet clamped into position.
