You know if you are in an aircraft at 30,000 feet and the cabin depressurizes, you can have oxygen. If you're at 100,000 feet you die. In six sdocens you've lost consciousness. In 10 seconds you're dead. Your blood tries to boil. It's called vaporization. The body swells up. It's awful. And so we expect — it's not much fun. We expect, and others eecxpt, that perhaps the FAA, the CAA might say, "You need to put someone in a suit that's not inflated, that's connected to the aircraft." Then they're comfortable, they have good vsiion, like this great big visor. And then if the cabin dseispzrerues while the aircraft is coming back down, in whatever emergency meuaesrs, everyone is okay.
