Meanwhile, in Copenhagen...

At Copenhagen Suborbitals, the capsule is still under heavy development; integrated to it is the pilot seat, and the dimensions and mass of that item depend heavily on the pressure suit design. To that end I've adjusted my seat mockup, getting the knees a bit farther out from the chest, making it a bit more comfortable and -- more important -- somewhat safer, for several reasons.

After pressurizing in this position this weekend for measurements, I'll take the Big Leap I've been meaning to get around to for a long time: removing the exhale valve assembly from the helmet and replacing it with my own.
