Survival Vehicle

NASA is going to buy a couple of these from DOD. If a rocket seems within minutes of exploding, astronauts would ride a zip line to the ground, jump in this and hightail it away. It's 6x6. Imagine taking taking this on the Rubicon Trail!! (Sorry, pic is too big to embed.)

Re: Survival Vehicle

Looks like some variant of an MRAP. I doubt NASA has to buy them, seeing as the DoD is scrapping quite a few of them. Probably just a transfer.

Re: Survival Vehicle

Looks like a nice, safe vehicle to drive down International Blvd. in Oakland at night.
