Last week was the first opportunity to fly my new Russian custom made spacesuit. It's the only one of it's kind in the World, having been put through it's paces at the American company which makes suits for NASA, (company and manufacturers names witheld until after the jump).

The next tests will include the life support system and parachute container. Further tests will include flying the drogue chute in the tunnel to test stability. Then it's on to the hypobaric and cold temperature tests.
NB: THIS PROJECT URGENTLY NEEDS SPONSORSHIP, please help us break this exciting record which has stood since 1960!
