Best comment so far on Felix Baumgartner's Skydive.

"How did he get his balls in that suit?"

Watched it live yesterday, definitely one of those moments in history I am so happy to have witnessed. I was a little annoyed that they cut away from the free fall when he hit mach 1, I mean, I understand why they did it, but after knowing that he survived breaking the sound barrier, I'm bummed they didn't show it.

I recently bought this dvd on the Red Bull Space Dive. Gotta say that seeing the back story on Felix Baumgartner made his jump even more impressive. Two big thumbs up!

That DVD was a special on TV here in the states a few months ago.

Very interesting indeed.

^^Hahah!! Everything is free in the USA while over here we pay and pay!

It was a really interesting show/dvd! I remember last October on German TV (the week before his jump) they showed how Felix was so crazy he jumped off of a lot of weird things and places. Free style. He jumped onto a trackor trailer truck while it headed South into Italy on the Brenner A1 Autobahn... when the truck drove over the TALL bridge(in the right lane)... he jumped off of it!! What a NUT! And that bridge is really far off the ground/valley!

I was surprised to see how close he came to not jumping at all and how much the project was delayed. I don't remember hearing anything about it, possibly on purpose, until the day or two before his jump.
