Supercut Helmet Oddity Space Helmet Mashup
In case you missed it, take a look at Supercut: Helmet Oddity, a mashup of at least fifty different fictional views of space helmets in cinema.
(Supercut: Helmet Oddity)
Credit for the earliest use of the phrase "space helmet" is usually given to Manly Wade Wellman in his 1931 novella The Disc-Men of Jupiter:
He took the glass-fronted space helmet and adjusted it on Thiana's head.
However, Edmond Hamilton wrote about transparent glassite space-helmets In his 1931 novella The Sargasso of Space:
(Transparent glassite space-helmets)
Kent and Liggett prepared to don their space-helmets, and before entering the airlock, Kent turned to Krell.
Since Hamilton and Wellman both published their stories in September of 1931, I'd call that a tie, wouldn't you?
