While squirrel suits are awesome, they are still not as awesome as the awesomeness that is the space shuttle rocketing into space and the awesomely remastered video of it doing so. Especially as there will be only more videos of squirrel suits (awesome) and no more of the space shuttle (not awesome) until some other program picks up or the Russians start sharing awesome videos.

Somewhere in the cobwebs of memory is an image from an old Flash Gordon serial. They jumped from "Strato Cruisers" and used Capes to glide just like that squirrel suit.

3 attaboys to the first to post a clip of that.

they were only what looked like a few feet off the ground. Is there a way to go a bit higher or is it just falling with style.

They have to meticulously plan routes based on rate of descent, weather, weight, any possible thermals, etc. due to the limited nature of control at that speed, since it is basically falling with a lot of style.
