    Judging by what little footage there is, this looks much more dangerous. Baumgartner had a capsule. This is just a balloon and a spacesuit.

    just got the chills..

    He has some courage to do this!! Sky diving and bungee jumping is on my to-do list but THAT is crazy. I will never be brave to do a free fall parachute or whatsoever...

    That's quite remarkable. I can't imagine just rising up on that balloon for 2 hours before starting his actual decent, talk about anticipation. I've been skydiving before and it's an awesome experience. Can't imagine what doing a free fall dive like this would be like.
