Pre-Test Pressure Test!

Pre-test pressure test! Ensuring all's AOK for tomorrow pm's pressurized balloon flight sim -- Ben Wilson will be in the suit on one side of Willamette R, one km away from us on the other side with radio, giving him commands and getting his information as though he were flying the balloon. This is to start getting us used to being physically and mentally cut off from the balloon pilot, ensure good comms etc. To add spice and difficulty it will be done in darkness.

Does this suit have the constant volume joints?

Yes, Anders, we have now constant-volume elbow joints. They work well! Cheers CMS
