Okay, so it says that the standard flight suit is implemented, but what does it actually do? Can you really survive outside your ship for 48 hours with it and the helmet on? how would you get out in the first place?

I agree with the whole balance thing...but then again, I have to look at other perspectives. If the SW universe is supposed to be so far advanced...why couldn't they have one suit that does both. I mean heck, here it is 2010, and we have space suits that can cool or heat an individual to keep their temperature regulated.
Thermal doesn't necessarily mean hot. It just means that the object is related to thermal energy. Whether it's protecting from thermal energy or actually produces heat is a completely different matter.
