For everyone interested,

tomorrow is a big even called Red Bull Stratos. 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.

This event is broadcasted live.

Find out more here!

Save landing space bro!

Couldn't care less?

Even so, I for one hope that his parachutes don't work because then it will be longest plummet to death.

International and National Hero Joseph Kittinger is the only person that will be allowed to talk to Felix Baumgartner during his descent, the feat could certificate a new type of space suit and give options for escape in the event of vessel failure during space missions.

First guy did it better... lost pressurization in one glove while ascending (hello frostbite!) and decided hell with it and jumped anyway Cool
