What a Jump!

Post by Best in Category on Mon 15 Oct 2012, 09:33

Unbelievable!

Felix Baumgartner jumps from a stratospheric helium balloon at 128,000 feet. Free fall. And breaks the sound barrier, before opening his parachute and returning to earth...

And I thought benji jumping was scary!

I did not lose a second of the show (a maximum of adrenaline). I love people who have courage!

That view as he stood at the exit before falling from the balloon literally turned my stomach.
I hope the scientists learn a lot about the body from
that experience.

It was amazing, he's very brave IMO to do something like that, what a story he has to tell

I watched it too and it made me sick to just see him whirling in the air. And then when he had landed, just smiling all ready to give interviews... amazing!

What he must have been thinking when he jumped!

Those guys were talking funny! But, I did understand one thing! One of the commentators said "sphincter". I'm sure Felix's sphincter was puckering big time!
