Cabin Can Be Released By means of quick release mech- lanlsm the cabin could be Teleased f. with the pilot still inside. The 1 »bln itself would-be attached to a I »*rachute. • . ' * ' ' '• A deep crumple skirt to'reduce the iock of striking' the ground and preventing too harsh a bounce—is fitted below the cabin floor. The designers believed that such a machine should be launched from an extensive desert area or from a location close to open sea. They estimate that their, rocket would reach a height of 225 miles.

The man-carryinR rocket, as we envisage it, ,1s really the forerunner ships. After the first experiments, our rockets should reach a height of 700 miles. "The- process of evolution is such that Exploration of the higher altitudes is vital to gain knowledge. Our man-carrying rocket is the first stage in.this new sphere of exploration." . • . . •' Both inventors are keenly disappointed over the rejection' of their plans^ Ross'predicted:... - • "One day, .perhaps, sooner than many of us think, space ships will be .flying."
