    He is on his way up now... This is live. He should be jumping in a few more minutes. 120,000 feet up or 23 miles

    How people do this is beyond me... Thought I'd share.

    Felix Baumgartner is headed up for his 23-mile-high skydive

    Edit: He is now at 127,245 feet. Higher then originally anticipated.

    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    The man reading off the checklist was the guy back in 1960 that jumped 108,000 feet.

    You couldn't pay me to jump off a diving board let alone 128K feet.

    Is he going to HOHO? He'd better have lots of O2.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    You mean HAHO LOL....Nope, his shoot shold open at 5K..I am assuming they will us a drogue shoot to stabilize him if things get out of control..Biggest problemis flying at that alititude is next to impossible. Worse thing is to get into an inctrolled horizontal spin. Tha would bead..knocks you out, and even if the main cute opens it might get wrapped around him.

    I am sure these folks have plans for that. (I pray)

    Highest I ever jumped was 27K
