Felix Re-Entry Suit

In low earth orbit, an astronaut abandons his doomed craft and returns to earth.

Watching the Felix Baumgartner jump was one of the highlights of the year for me. I was really blown away, and this is my homage to that moment: a theoretical look at what advances his jump could bring for space exploration and astronaut survivability. In this case it’s a specialized hardened suit that can allow for re-entry from low earth orbit. Not a jump you want to make, but when you have to you’ll want to be wearing this suit.
