Kazbek Seat Test Today!

Testing the suit as it works with the Copenhagen Suborbitals (CS) capsule today; this is the Kazbek Seating Position of the highly reliable Soyuz vehicle; its seat is the main influence on the CS capsule design. The test will put me in the suit, in the seat, pressurize, and get measurements. It's going to be very interesting and will reveal, I'm sure, a laundry list of things I'll need to do to build the CS pilot's pressure suit. if there's time we will also do a test of the new breathing gas delivery regulator. Plenty to do!
