You go girl! The close-fitting Spacesuit shows that this is a woman. The booster is based upon Armadillo Aerospace designs. This video depicts suborbital diving. There is no life-support backpack, so this is a short trip. She is shown breaking the sound barrier, like Major Joseph Kittinger in 1960.
Kittinger (2-minute video below) jumped from a balloon at 102,000 feet, a freefall record which still stands. At 43,000 feet he noticed that his glove had depressurised. Like Chuck Yeager, Kittinger neglected to tell the ground about his right side. The mission would have been scrubbed and Kittinger confined to the hospital. The hand swelled to twice its normal size and Kittinger was in pain up and down.
Human skin is airtight, and forms a natural Spacesuit. If exposed to vacuum, the body will swell from internal pressure like Kittinger’s hand. Increasing volume leads to decreasing internal pressure and decompression sickness (the bends.) A human can survive a small portions of the skin exposed to vacuum. After landing, Kittinger’s hand was back to normal in a few hours.
Our skintight suit is made of materials that behave like elastic. Direct pressure from the suit, rather than air, protects the wearer from vacuum. This allows us to build a suit that is lighter, more flexible and comfortable. A hole in the suit would cause swelling directly beneath the hole until blood clotting naturally sealed the breach. In other words, you would just get a big zit. If an astronaut developed a hole in one of today’s suits, he would get a high school named for him.
The skintight suit is a reality that Space organizations are interested in. If not via Armadillo, perhaps we could launch from a modified Spaceship Two. The practical benefits include quick emergency evacuation from a Space station. Crewmembers carrying small payloads could also be boosted directly into orbit like Iron Man. Space Diving will be a reality someday soon.
