Personal Spaceflight: How Safe Need it Be?
Commercial Space Gateway
I was fascinated recently to learn about Robert Talmage, President of TAAS Company in Acworth, GA, and patent holder for an Aircraft Escape Cabin (AEC) designed for use on high-performance aircraft and space planes. His goal is to develop a practical and reliable escape system for vehicles traveling at very high speeds and at altitudes between about 225 meters and low Earth orbit. His business plan includes validating the AEC concept using a modified Learjet as a flight test platform and subsequently for development and testing support of new efficient propulsion systems ideally suited for aircraft style operations.
