Beyond sky diving, space diving is the next big step. The RL MARK VI would allow high-altitude jumps from near-space, suborbital space, and eventually low Earth orbit itself.

Will also allow spaceflight participants a way of escape from a possibly on-orbit emergency.

Inspired by Joe Kittinger who in 1960 leap from a balloon 30km high, this is a glimpse of the great new sport we’ll be seeing in a few years.

Skydiving on Earth is already extreme, but research pioneers want to jump from rockets at the edge of space. At Sol-X we are creating a space suit add-on with thrusters so that skydivers can stabilize their descent. This suit could also allow wingsuit fliers to land safely without a parachute, and will improve the safety of commercial spaceflight passengers launching in 2013.
