    Absolutely amazing! This should be front-page news. Or at least Page 2 news.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Be Prepared to Stop....

    It's never the fall that gets you, but rather the abrupt halt at the end. ;)

    They planned ahead and cheated - it was sent up with some handwarmers.

    I agree. planning ahead to use hand warmers is not cheating. Neither is using a parachute.

    The video is really cool.
    As for minor mistakes the guy made. One being the hand warmers to try to keep the equipment warm. Those things are basically high speed rusting of iron and use oxygen out of the air. Rather worthless at higher altitudes. Now great idea in theory.
    I still say it was rather cool to watch.

    Simply amazing

    I saw this on the new a couple weeks ago I didn't know they used an iPhone. When my son gets older I would love to do something like this.
