On BautForum, Manmeetvirdi asked if a satellite can be rescued from a failing launcher by some kind of ejection seat, as he was saddened by a failure of GSLV.
Having given a thought at this challenge, I've found that nearly every operation in the rescue is possible, except up to now the too steep plunge in the atmosphere that creates an unbearable deceleration.
For those interested, I put a description there:
hey, there are even drawings!
Fun: I wanted to publish it at Bautforum in the original discussion, but the forum there just collapsed as I tried to post my contribution - among several hindrances this idea has experienced.
