I'd rather be able to 'hang out' up there a bit, a few hundred passes around the globe to take in the sites of the world, the moon, the stars
I can see the thrill in the plunge.
Do you need the rocket boots because your speed is so great, you don't have time to slow down from the increasing atmospheric density?
Anyone consider opening the parachute at maximum effective altitude and floating down for hours? I think that would be a lot of time to appreciate
the scene more than free-falling ... though making sure you don't land somewhere ridiculous or getting caught in a jet stream might be an issue?
Don't know if I'd have the gall to make the jump, but would sure love a proper flight and landing to visit space ... unless I find my calling,
don't expect to have the resources to pour into such a thing :/
