Default Dump Valve

I believe that is the emergency dump valve for the pressurization system.

Talking

I seem to recall reading or hearing that Spaceship one used a cork stopper as the valve to keep it pressurized during its space shot. That and a canister of Oxygen.

Maybe that guy was just planning to fly high! Or maybe he was high before flying...
