This re-entry suit designed by Bulgarian artist dfacto, an astronaut abandons his doomed craft and returns to earth. Perhaps NASA has similar things in mind, but this is just a wishful concept. Good idea! "Watching the Felix Baumgartner jump was one of the highlights of the year for me. I was really blown away, and this is my homage to that moment: a theoretical look at what advances his jump could bring for space exploration and astronaut survivability. In this case it's a specialized hardened suit that can allow for re-entry from low earth orbit. Not a jump you want to make, but when you have to you'll want to be wearing this suit."
