Fearless Felix Baumgartner’s jump was truly amazing but, at about 38,710m, it wasn’t from orbit — not even low Earth orbit. Maybe one day someone will beat his record with this re-entry emergency suit. Can you imagine being inside as you plunge into Earth’s atmosphere and everything turns into fire?
You know how it goes: “I’m burning through the sky yeah! Two hundred degrees, that’s why they call me Mister Fahrenheit! I’m trav’ling at the speed of light! I wanna make a supersonic man out of you!”
Of course, we don’t know if this re-entry suit designed by Bulgarian artist “dfacto” can work at all. Perhaps NASA has similar things in mind, but this is just a wishful concept. Maybe it’s not even possible — but possible or not, it’s a really cool concept nonetheless.
