Boot Work!

Fifth build of a boot bladder for the pressure suit -- it seems simple, but keeping it simple and robust has taken several attempts. The fifth design is easy to build and proves gastight. More testing will guaranteed that it holds pressure and will be then protected in several other layers, ending with a customized boot using a carbon-fiber sole insert and a restraint layer that is both tough and flameproof. Progress!
