Post one hell of a jump
Quote:
Red Bull Stratos, a mission to the edge of space, will attempt to transcend human limits that have existed for 50 years. Supported by a team of experts Felix Baumgartner plans to ascend to 120,000 feet in a stratospheric balloon and make a freefall jump rushing toward earth at supersonic speeds before parachuting to the ground.

Yep, I've been waiting for this for quite some time. Even talked with one of them about a filming idea they might consider. It's the reason I'll be waking at 5am tomorrow...
