Re: Felix Baumgartner is the Freaking Man
The only person Baumgartner will be in communication with will be Kittinger, who holds the current free fall record. He's 84 now.
Felix suffered from claustrophobia from the suit to the point he needed therapy. He almost scrapped the mission because of it. All you can hear is your own breathing, your vision is limited. For hours.
Getting closer to launch...he'll jump a few hours after that.
If you're watchin' a parade, make sure you stand in one spot, don't follow it, it never changes. And if the parade is boring, run in the opposite direction, you will fast-foward the parade. --Mitch Hedberg
