Footage from the launch and drop operations under the "High Dive" program back in the middle 50's.

These dummies where used to study the behavior of a human like body in free fall in the framework of a project devoted to develope a escape system for future astronauts whom would need to bailout from the stratosphere.

These research drop test lead to another program (Excelsior) that used a human being as test subject.

According to the Air Force, these test carried out in the desert over New Mexico, are probably the source (among other confusion and myths) of the "Alien bodies" allegations in regard the UFO Crash at Roswell in 1947.
