Second attempt. damned.gif

Quote:If nothing goes wrong, Felix will break four records today: highest altitude reached by a man on balloon, highest jump, longest free fall ever and first man to go faster than the speed of sound without any propulsion device. To do so, he will ride the biggest balloon to ever carry a human being.

Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.

He's ascending as we speak. Going on 4 km up in the air. Don't know how long it takes to reach 120 000 feet. damned.gif

I just hope he makes it. What possesses people to do this kind of thing is beyond me.
