I was wondering about this guy as i hadn’t hear much since I saw the initial article about Felix Baumgartner’s upcoming 120,000′ skydive attempt in Outside Magazine. (Plus, my kids, who read the article too, kept asking me whether or not this guy had attempted his jump yet.)
It’s an amazing attempt, and not just an act of derring-do. Should be used to find ways to keep astronauts safe if something happens to their craft when returning to earth.
