Whittling Down the Bailout Time

We are getting the bailout time towards reasonable. Today I did 40 minutes in the launch position to look for points of pain, cramps, and so on. Afterwards, another bailout test, this time yet faster and more believable. Tomorrow -- free-fall test, and then Tuesday the Altitude Chamber here in Copenhagen! Bailout video below--in the background, the sounds of Peter building his giant liquid oxygen-alcohol rocket, to be tested this time next year. Also next year weøll be doing water landing training and starting to lay in the details of my 2015 balloon flight to 65,000 feet or so.
