Apparently, the records have been broken with little fanfare?

This is all over local news as well. Doing such a stunt at the age of 57 sounds daring and so cool.
I think we are bound to see more of these jumps in the future, daring the limits.

What I've found cool about this jump is that it didn't include a capsule, rather there was a direct connection to the weather balloon. It must have been quite a sight going up? wink.gif

Yeah, I think so too. It didn't take very long for someone to raise the bar. I haven't really been able to find a lot of info about this jump, or video etc. Just that story from the AP being re-reported at other news outlets and blogs. Have you found any footage, pictures or additional info?
I wonder, was he just harnessed in below the balloon, or in a basket of some kind?
