          Heh...

          I got up at 1.30 (figuring it'd take him a couple of hours to get up there). It had then been postponed and aborted by the time I woke this morning.

          I'd hate to think of the cost of an aborted mission. Without considering the extra infrastructure required, the 1 use only balloon must cost a bomb. They have but one spare on site. Looks like the next possible window will be Thursday their time.

            stuff that for a joke. I feel weird enough going up in a plane, let alone jumping out of a balloon from that high up

            it's a weird sensation of 'i'm really not meant to be up this high but I am'

              I reckon he is a guaranteed customer for one of those $10K coffee machines.

              More money than cents...

              Or is it just another ‘advert’ masquerading as ‘News’

                    They're now talking up the idea of 11pm AEDT Sunday.

                    Gotta admit the view will be good....if he lives to remember it!

                        WOW, what a rush that would be.
                        I would do it... drop of a hat.

                        Cracking Mach1 in a suit is a pretty close to Chuck Yeager's effort where they had a "fair idea it was ok" but still enough doubt to make it a coin toss.

                        Good luck Felix!

                          This puts a whole new dimension to the term "God Shot"!! I wonder if he will wave as he goes by on the way down?? The air space must be cleared of and foreign objects, like a stray SR-71!
