I don't know if you know who's Felix Baumgartner, but that man pushes the limits of the impossible. Tomorrow he jumps from the edge of the space ohmy.gif

I have been following this for a little while now in anticipation of the final jump, It kind of reminds me of the last Star Trek movie where Kirk and Sulu and the guy in Red that dies lol jump from space to try and stop the drill from drilling into Vulcan. smile.gif

Must have been incredibly frustrating. But I just bet that he has amazing self control and patience. You don't get as fas as he's got without developing it, I guess smile.gif

watching this as well.... almost at 84000ft....

and I thought jumping from the high dive board at the pool was scary tongue.gif

I wish him the best of luck. This is pretty cool... crazy... but certainly pretty cool. Also pretty historic...
