Air Force Colonel Joe Kittinger made a parachute jump from an altitude of 102,800 feet back in 1960. I never heard of this. It's amazing!

It is the lack of Christianity that has brought us where we are. Not a lack of churches or religious forms but of the real thing in our hearts. LIW.....Words From a Fearless Heart

Apparently it's still the world record, Amy. I found an article that said that an Austrian skydiver named Felix Baumgartner planned to jump from 23 miles up last year, but it was cancelled.

Does anybody else feel really fragile watching this video?

Wow. I am kind of in shock that this hasn't been attempted over and over again. Can you imagine being able to live to tell this tale?! Yes, fragile indeed Rob! OhMy
