Disassembling the keg that was once attached to the capsule providing images of the jump.
The Red Bull Stratos engineering team is back together again working on the capsule, only this time they’re taking equipment off. Riedel Communications, FlightLine Films, and Sage Cheshire Aerospace all worked through the week in Lancaster, CA slenderizing the capsule. The crew admitted it was a bit odd to disassemble parts rather than build them as they’ve been doing for the past 5 years. There is a lot of pride in completing a successful mission but it’s also shall we say, bitter sweet since everyone has grown close as a family.
