PostSubject: Record Jump   Tue Oct 09, 2012 1:41 pm

A daredevil named Felix Baumgartner is about to attempt a new world record for longest freefall.  He's going up in a balloon to a height of 120,000 feet (nearly 23 miles!), and will parachute jump from there.  You can watch it live here:

(It was delayed by weather this morning, so I'm not sure when it's going to launch.)

Here you go. There's a very scary time at about the 4:35 mark where he seems to be tumbling out of control. I can't imagine how that feels at 700 mph!

That or it is his cat that stowed away and he didn't like being left behind....they've been reporting in the news lately that it is that time of the year when you need to bang on your vehicle before leaving the house just in case they are hiding out...... batEyes

Experts believe that this is the sound of the first human not in an aircraft breaking the speed of sound. They say it's at the 25 mark, but I can't hear anything.....
