Hm... did anyone else just see that?

The feed we're getting from inside the capsual... is that filmed off a screen or is it a direct feed?

I just saw a person walk by in a reflection on a dark area of the inside.

The guy obviously has BALLS the size of watermelons... Holy hell, I know I would never put my family through a crazy ass jump like that, they all looked terrified seeing him go up... Glad to see Felix survive that crazy leap of faith... Good job man!!!

I saw a shadow moving in the capsule a couple of times. No idea what it was.

If Felix broke the sound barrier, and I think he did, did he hear a sonic boom or is that only for those not traveling at Mach 1?

Probably TSA checking him for guns and stuff before he jumped. These guys are everywhere!

Congratulations to him and the entire crew that made it possible.

Regardless if he had broken any records, there is ONE MAJOR & CRITICAL RECORD that he had BROKENED.

He had proven that man can step out into the air at those heights, with proper equipment, survive and land safely.

It will be an ACHIEVEMENT and model for all humanity, when the day becomes necessary for such actions, such as rescue operations in difficult and troubled spots or even future space missions to the stars.

I was afraid we was going to get shot down for flying over Area 51.

Hot air pulled him up, gravity pulled him down and technology made sure he didnt die.

Was there any skill involved?

When he started tumbling they cut his audio feed...That would have been the best part!

After they restored audio he said he was in fear of passing out....I know I was worried--that was
some radical tumbling for a few seconds.

And too bad he opened his chute too early and didn't break the free-fall record....Oh well

I 'd pay a year's salary to do that!

Yeah, one skill that a lot of people lack.. and that was the will and determination to do the jump.

Perhaps you could do this jump? Maybe record it, and show us?


Anyway, like stated, this was a historic moment for man. It also provided some critical data that can contribute to future of space travel and/or rescues. And the guy got to do what only some of us dream of, he got to actually jump out of space back to earth.. Pretty amazing.


edit: Also I bet 100 e-dollars that the next redbull promo has this guy chuggin a redbull, then jumping out.

Not to be "that correcting idiot-guy", my friend, but it was Helium in the balloon. Not hot air.
