I looked it up and it’s insane. In the name of science they ejected a bear out of a plane. They claim it survived unharmed, well at least until they euthanized and dissected it to study the impact on its organs.
Upon landing, the bears were checked over for any injuries. Some did suffer broken bones, internal injuries and bruising but no bears died in the test flight ejections. According to a few sources, There was one fatality among the animals during testing. One bear had a brain condition that wasn’t detected prior to the flight and the physical strain during the ejection killed the animal. Two other bears suffered minor fractures and bruising during their flights.
