[b]MAX-1 - Spacecraft[/b]
Named after American spacecraft designer Maxime "Max" A. Faget (pronounced FAhzay) (August 26, 1921 – October 9, 2004), the spacecraft MAX-1 is currently being developed.
The MAX-1 is a step towards the historical Mercury spacecraft using 1 top-placed and deployed main parachute for final descent. Placing the parachute systems in the top eliminates the posibility of a acrylic top view dome, but these functions are replaced with at 360 degree acrylic cylinder around the head of the astronaut.
The ingress/egress hatch is placed above the head of the astronaut and can be open and closed from both the inside and outside using 8 pneumatic cylinders.
MAX-1 will be produced in aluminium.
