    Felix Baumgartner is going to jump from a height of 128.000 feet or 39km with a parachute. Right now he is very close to the jump, so watch him here live:


    The plan is that he will be braking the sound barrier while doing a free fall back to earth, this would make him the first human that has broken the sound barrier without any power other then gravity. Very cool
  2. Watched it. 2+ hours up, 2 mins down :)

    It was amazing - and I'm so happy I turned on the live vid cam at the very right moment, when he waved and jumped :D

    If anyone has balls of fire, it must be him!

    I actually wanted to start '50 facts about Felix Baumgartner'

    1st: He doesn't need to walk. The Universe will turn around him ...

    It was really exciting! I watched the whole thing with housemates more or less. Its great the way we can choose what to watch and put it on TV. Was I think there was something to gain from seeing the lot even though it was sorta dull. I liked the facts and explanations and build up etc.

    It made the final moments extremely tense. I almost couldn't watch. Just imagining being there... standing on the edge of a portaloo 120000ft up... makes my guts churn just thinking about it. The guy has balls indeed.
  5. Did any see that white UFO orb on the live stream ?
