Yeah, classic how the feed went silent when he spoke about heating issues for his face/helmet.

The coverage had been bang on until that question.

The Armstrong line does not sound very pleasant at all...



At or above the Armstrong limit, exposed bodily liquids such as saliva, tears, and the liquids wetting the alveoli within the lungs—but not vascular blood (blood within the circulatory system)—will boil away without a pressure suit and no amount of breathable oxygen delivered by any means will sustain life for more than a few minutes.[3] The NASA technical report Rapid (Explosive) Decompression Emergencies in Pressure-Suited Subjects, which discusses the brief accidental exposure of a human to near vacuum notes the likely result of exposure to pressure below that associated with the Armstrong limit: "The subject later reported that ... his last conscious memory was of the water on his tongue beginning to boil."[4]

No way it's anything major. The last thing they wanted was idiots to make something out of nothing (on social media, or the feed), which is probably why the feed from control went silent and is now on the commentator.

Don't give doom bringers anything to grasp.

It's like 3:30am here. So much for being awake when the sun comes up.

i don't think i've heard from control since. But they did she a shot if Felix talking, followed by his mother smiling.

They have mentioned the armstong line a few times. How blood would boil etc. Not nice.

For all you scence/tech people;

He is now at 67.000 feet but when you factor in the windchill, it's just like 200 miles up which is 3 times farther than the moon.

Just trying to keep it technical.

I heard that, I was wondering why, because you could clearly hear that there was a malfunction.

Obvious silence was obvious.

Using a mirror just like Apollo missions, wonder if things are written backwards like the old days.
