Astronaut Training Centrifuge
Gadget: Astronaut Training Centrifuge
Owner: Hugo Drax
An astronaut training vehicle used to simulate G-force, which
is experienced during lift off. It is a small single seater capsule,
which is spun quickly in a circle by a large motorised arm. 3
Gs was a safe amount, 7 Gs will be enough to make people pass
out, however 20 Gs would be fatal.
Bond was given a personal demonstration of the centrifuge by
Holly Goodhead, the amount was going to be 3 Gs. Unfortunately
for Bond Drax's henchman, Chang took over the centrifuge and disabled
the panic button, increasing the machine to a suicidal 12 Gs.
As a last moment attempt, Bond managed to fire his wrist dart
gun into the control panel of the capsule and stop the machine.
An in-place training vehicle with a small one seater capsule,
attached to a large mechanical arm, which spun the capsule at
high velocity in a large circle.
