Shoot Week Day 4

Burrragh! Ten minutes in the cold chamber in the first test killed our circulation system, froze it dead in -20F leaving me familiarly chilled to the core and numb at the extremities! As expected, but faster than expected. Thawed out after another 20 min in the chamber (electrics did well), went back in for another 30 min and significantly improved the heating fluid, keeping me gloriously warm in the suit. Learned a lot and once again great work by the Pacific Spaceflight crew and the great and large documentary film crew. Tomorrow a little rest, then off to another location!
