About the falling time. I really doubt he had the 14 seconds for freefall at that speed. I don't know wat altitude he was at when he pulled the chute but given how little time he spent in the chute I doubt he had the altitude for another 14 seconds of freefall.

But when he opened the door, and that dark blue horizon. I got such massive goosebumps.

And that spin, there wasn't much he could do. The air was so thin that using your arms and legs for resistance didn't to a lot until he got down to denser air. Still scared me shitless to see him spinning and then switching straight to ground control.

Epic jump and I can't wait to see the videos from his suit.

Obviously not like it did for Travis Pastrana.

Alex obviously didn't drink the redbull like he was supposed to.

Really?

MSNBC?

I shouldn't be surprised, I work with these people... Some of them would think that moving a deer-crossing sign to a less-busy road would be a good idea.
