Did the first astronauts have space suits?

Yes, a pressure suit (otherwise known as a space suit) is a fundamental safety feature used on almost all space flights. The Soviets sent a few people up without one, but the United States requires that all its astronauts wear their pressure suit, including their helmet, during launch and reentry. The only U.S. crew that did not wear their helmets during reentry was the Apollo 7 crew. All 3 of them contracted severe head colds while in space. They felt their eardrums might burst due to sinus pressure if they had their helmets on during reentry. NASA administrators did not agree. None of the Apollo 7 astronauts ever flew again
