"The capsule was designed to float, and contained food and survival supplies."

For the researchers' sake I hope they stocked it with food. The only thing worse than a pissed off bear that got ejected from a supersonic flight is a hungry pissed of bear that got ejected from a supersonic flight.

Fark refering to a Yahoo news article that's based on an io9 article written by a freelance writer that's frequently referred to by the Stuff You Should Know podcast over at How Stuff Works.

Poor guy, he's stuck in Buffalo NY. I bet he wishes he was an ejection seat tester, anything to get out of that town.

Bears were used after a team of twinks died in early tests.

The bears did fabulously.

As bad as it sounds to use man eating bears in an experiment, think of it this way: if the experiment succeeds, then you have a valid technology you can use with human pilots.  If not, hey, one less man eating bear.

Holy isht those guys have to have some disconnect switch in their brains to let them do something like that with no empathy for the bear. Somethin ain't right wit them boys brains...That bear doesn't know wtf is going on. I hope they were heavily sedated, but maybe not since they needed the test to be as close to a humans experience as possible.

..I mean it was for a good reason, but testing on animals who have no idea what kind of sick trip they're on is just wrong IMO..and yes I'm well aware of all the animal testing that has gone on and continues to in the name of science and product testing..

...and I'm not happy but admittedly have no solution.

Yes.

From the bears' perspective, it's kinda hard to call the tests "successful" when the final exam was a necropsy.

I bet you'd have felt differently if you were to be ejected from an experimental ejection system and then dissected at the end. I think military pilots should have some kind of bear thanking ritual to do every time they land safely.

2) Was your tunnelling/diving flight plan authorized?

You'd win that bet. i was a stupid kid who mustered testosterone and bravado to challenge an F4 pilot. I learned stupidity and hormones only go so far.

The Chinese media has reported on an extraordinary account of a mother bear saving her cub from a life of torture by strangling it and then killing itself.


The bears were kept in a farm located in a remote area in the North-West of
China. The bears on the farm had their gall bladders milked daily for 'bear bile,'
which is used as a remedy in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

It was reported that the bears are kept in tiny cages known as 'crush cages',
as the bears have no room to manoeuvre and are literally crushed.

The bile is harvested by making a permanent hole or fistula in the bears'
abdomen and gall bladder.

As the hole is never closed, the animals are suspect to various infections and
diseases including tumours, cancers and death from peritonitis.

The bears are fitted with an iron vest, as they often try to kill themselves by
hitting their stomach as they are unable to bear the pain.

A person who was on the farm in place of a friend witnessed the procedures
and told Reminbao.com that they were inhumane.

The witness also claimed that a mother bear broke out its cage when it heard
its cub howl in fear before a worker punctured its stomach to milk the bile.

The workers ran away in fear when they saw the mother bear rushing to its
cub's side.

Unable to free the cub from its restraints, the mother hugged the cub and
eventually strangled it.

It then dropped the cub and ran head-first into a wall, killing itself.

Many TCM practitioners have denounced the use of bear bile in their
treatment as there are cheaper herbs and synthetics that can be used in its
place.

Bear bile is traditionally used to remove 'heat' from the body as well as treat
high fever, liver ailments and sore eyes.

We've got plenty of convicts otherwise just sitting around, sucking up tax money. Why not offer them time off their sentences and/or improved living conditions in exchange for testing? At least some of the less medically exploratory testing, such as the effects of cosmetics on skin, or beta-testing drugs. I would think having actual human results would be useful, rather than looking at what happens to rats and rabbits and then extrapolating the results.
