Near the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 we see Yondu and Peter ejected over a dying Ego, with Peter wearing the only space suit, in this time he scrabbles at his chest to take off the disk projecting the suit but is unable to switch it onto Yondu and save his life.
Why couldn't Peter take the space suit off and save Yondu?
Well, I could not find this topic discussed anywhere, but the person wearing the suit should probably be able to take it off on his/her own. So I find it kind of weird Peter was unable to take it off. I doubt Yondu hacked it to make it work like that, therefore the only reason I can find is that it was a failsafe, in order to prevent taking it off unintentionally in a life-threatening environment. So was there some official statement on this from the filmmakers, or does everyone presumes like me that it was due to the failsafe?
