    This is what separates the men from the boys .
    Maybe crazy but....

    Red Bull Stratos, a mission to the edge of space, will attempt to transcend human limits that have existed for 50 years. Supported by a team of experts Felix Baumgartner plans to ascend to 120,000 feet in a stratospheric balloon and make a freefall jump rushing toward earth at supersonic speeds before parachuting to the ground. His attempt to dare atmospheric limits holds the potential to provide valuable medical and scientific research data for future pioneers.

    Watching this live streaming to my TV right now... amazing indeed. He's going to jump any time. At almost 126,000 feet now. They are going to slow the decent.... he is climbing too fast! This is exciting history in the making...

    Watching it on the tv. Big screen is better. Pretty damn amazing to watch him step out of the capsule and disappear.

    Still a little shocked he managed to get his balls out the capsule door.
