This is nrjirly lour miles higher than the space studies contained in tin- hook, and La Paz says current space charts he has seen as high as 500 miles — although not with a pilot aboard. If this is the case—and any confirmation still is in the drawer ma ked suner-duper top secret—it tops the previous record altitude mark set two years ago by a two- stage rocket launched at White indi'-at" that rockets have sono .Sands. That WAC corporal, shot from the nose of a V-2, went only 240 miles up. B t before you head for the moon, half-cocked, take a look at what you'll need besides that space suit: An ejector pod to catapult you from the rocket ship in case anything goes wrong, automatically opening a parachute to let you safe y to earth. A parachute made of something that won't melt when you generate a head of 540 degrees Fahrenheit—more than twice the boiling point—by falling 500.000 feet at 100 feet a second.
