This is cool but they really need to change the name of it until people are actually diving from space.
No one had dived from space since space starts 62 miles (or 328,084 feet) high.
No one has jumped from there. The first person who does will get astronaut wings from the FAA.
Felix Baumgartner, the guy from the "Space Jump" never got astronaut wings because he never went to space.
He just jumped from 128,000 feet (39 km or 24 miles) up.
As you can see from the above chart, that isn't space. That's the Stratosphere.
Space starts above that red line in the Thermosphere.
