Yes! stop messing about Felix! just jump off the balloon already!....man or mouse eh?...squeek squeek!..I've been monitoring their website, but they keep pushing the deadline back. They're blaming the weather, but I think it's Baumgartner chickening out...
A marketing stunt is all it is, certainly. But who cares, it's so cool! I didn't get to watch Kittinger make his jump, but now, along with 6.5 million other people, I'm streaming this jump live on YouTube!I fail to see the special achievement other than a huge marketing stunt for a certain energy drink company. Before you bury my comment please read up on Kittinger's jumps:
Now that was an achievement with much less sophisticated technology, knowledge and security systems. Also didn't have a fancy sponsor.
So now, a few decades later, Baumgartner jumps off a mere 5 km higher than Kittinger...yawn.
Anyway, just my opinion.
