There has always been someone responsible for the gear and equipment any "hero" uses. But it still takes the man doing it to make it happen. So yes, this man will be, in some form, a hero. He's doing something extraordinary that has taken years and years to prepare for.

However, those who made it possible for him should also not be taken lightly. They've put just as much effort into all of it as he has.

So, looks like he broke a couple records, but not for longest free fall.


That had to be so awesome.

Well that was a big disappointment. He had chest cams but we never saw one chest cam shot. I would have loved to see him plummeting to the earth to get a really good view of what he was seeing. I'd have had cameras all over that suit with different angles and a few on him too.

At one point I swear he said he felt like he was gonna pass out.

I believe the chest cam was not a direct feed but was only recording the descent. Red bull will probably use that footage in their next commercial which should air sometime next week.

Why do they always assume the public can't handle the truth?

Note how Kittinger fumbled when he got to checkpoint number 11 about the faceplate. They'd been having problems with it, then just before the jump it was announced as fixed. Kittinger then got to the heater in the checklist and said: "Next check if the faceplate heater is up to full power and the chest display is lit. I know we would've done that if..."

And then the audio was cut away, Kittinger looks up to someone instructing him and then the audio comes back on again.

"I'm sorry, check if the faceplate heater is up to full power and the chest display is lit." Seemingly without even looking Felix confirms and jumps only to have his faceplate fog up causing him to open the chute early and failing to break the record for longest free fall.

Obviously the heater was never fixed. Why pretend that it was? Did they really think they would get away with it if the malfunctioning heater had let to more serious problems by pretending they thought it was fixed?

My only problem with this is that its a waste of money and resources. provides nothing but entertainment, and i think there is enough of that going on right now.

What's it matter to you if it is private money that is being wasted. Plus it does allow for research on effects on the human body.

Plausible deniability. They wanted to be covered just in case something really did happen, only in the public eye though.


Peace
