"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.

Today your assignment will be to remove an angry bear from the straps that held him in place during the test flight.

God speed, Private.

FauxReal: 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.

still up there too, poor thing

Beautiful. Is that a Hustler?


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

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.

The ejecting is nothing compared to the fact they could teach the bears to pilot the planes,
