Space suit creator Final Frontier Design is hoping its profits will rocket with the growth of commercial space travel.

Currently based in a small studio in Brooklyn, New York, company founders Ted Southern and Nikolay Moiseev are wishing for a future slice of the $1.4bn investment in space tourism.

Mr Southern told the BBC: "A lot of the rocket companies are hoping to fly 2014, 2015, 2016 - years out... It's been a challenge, for that reason, finding funding, finding partners, finding customers."
