Fearless Felix Baumgartner's jump was truly amazing but, at about 127,000 feet, it wasn't from orbit—not even low Earth orbit. Maybe one day someone will beat his record with this re-entry emergency suit. Can you imagine being inside as you plunge into Earth's atmosphere and everything turns into fire?
You know how it goes: "I'm burning through the sky yeah! Two hundred degrees, that's why they call me Mister Fahrenheit! I'm trav'ling at the speed of light! I wanna make a supersonic man out of you!"
Of course, we don't know if this re-entry suit designed by Bulgarian artist dfacto can work at all. Perhaps NASA has similar things in mind, but this is just a wishful concept. Maybe it's not even possible—but possible or not, it's a really cool concept nonetheless.
