This made me automatically think of the Presidents escape pod in "Escape From New York".

Ah ... how times have changed.

Hmmm...

Should be used on the business class porkers who fly across to the States and back.
Or do they already do so ... and we plebs don't get told!

It looks like utter rubbish - as if he, (or anyone), apart from astronauts would go in that?

The OP is 16 years old. Was this the original title or has it been renamed?
I would have thought Bomb Shelters to be a more accurate category than Retro-Science.
