I began wondering if the pressurized suit and helmet was a military test - on public airwaves.

GM: Yeah. I mean, I gleaned from that information... What I surmised is that an off-planet Space Marines is being formed.
The government can turn anything into a military application so you may be right. Perhaps redbull will be a military grade stimulant some day
Felix Baumgartner's historic Mach 1.24 free fall from the edge of space on October 14, 2012, wearing a David Clark Company pressure suit, expanded the performance envelope for aerospace crew protective equipment. Felix's parachute jump raised the bar for crew survivability to 128,100 feet from the previous mark of 102,800 feet set in 1960 by Air Force test pilot Joe Kittinger. Kittinger also wore a David Clark Company pressure suit for that historic jump.
