Time to prepare the only correct music for a man-made sonic boom...

That video+music combination better exist after this.

I'm really hoping this goes well.

He's about to jump!

I'm scared for him.

#109 Posted by Zaccheus (1792 posts) -

I actually jumped from 4000m, but I'm more scared watching this than I was then.

#110 Posted by Winternet (8014 posts) -

Jump, jump, jump!!!

#111 Posted by TrulyAlive (900 posts) -

2 minutes in the freefall, this is CRAZY.

Wish the feed would fucking work. I'm angry beyond words right now. Worked this morning and worked for two minutes 30 minutes ago and it hasn't worked since.

#125 Posted by villainy (556 posts) -

@TrulyAlive: He just stopped spinning and stabilized. Now I need a cigarette.

#126 Posted by dungbootle (2457 posts) -

Don't die, duder!

#127 Posted by Zaccheus (1792 posts) -

That spinning was fucking crazy.

#128 Posted by CaptainTightPants (2834 posts) -

CHUTE SUCCESS

#129 Posted by thatdutchguy (1271 posts) -

Well that was boring.... no helmet cam :S

#130 Posted by TooWalrus (13164 posts) -

Well, he didn't break the sound barrier, or get the longest freefall time- but at least the fucker's alive!

#131 Posted by Mercer (203 posts) -

Didn't surpass the freefall record, but I think he certainly broke the jump height record

#132 Posted by J12088 (445 posts) -

Why the hell isnt there a helmet cam? Just a grey blob couldnt see shit. Let down.

#133 Posted by villainy (556 posts) -

Shame he didn't break the sound barrier but GOD DAMN! That was ridiculous. I hope he's stoked and ready to run 100 miles on adrenaline alone.

There is. Just can't broadcast it live as he was falling over 1000kmph to earth. Lol how was that a let down.

space jumps just happen everyday and are clearly mundane now.

#136 Posted by dungbootle (2457 posts) -

Hey guys I'm not an expert or anything but maybe a helmet cam would have been unfeasible in this situation. I don't know.

#137 Posted by Hailinel (24402 posts) -

HOLY BALLS JESUS JUMPING CHRIST HE SURVIVED.

#138 Posted by mnzy (2914 posts) -

Why do you guys say that he didn't brake the sound barrier? I'm watching Red Bull TV here and they did say he did, but they need verification.

#139 Posted by villainy (556 posts) -

@Mercer: Broke the records for highest jump, fastest freefall speed, and height reached by a man by balloon.

#140 Posted by Bourbon_Warrior (4523 posts) -

That view when he jumped was the coolest thing I have ever seen live.

HE DID IT.

maybe even broke mach one

#143 Posted by charlie_victor_bravo (990 posts) -

Nice landing. We need more stuff like this.

#144 Posted by Make_Me_Mad (3068 posts) -

Aww, no sound barrier break? That was actually pretty disappointing... but awesome at the same time. Glad he stabilized, that spinning and the sudden silence was all kinds of tense.

#145 Posted by Quipido (633 posts) -

Well, that was nuts.

#146 Edited by villainy (556 posts) -

@mnzy: Speed of sound is 761.2 MPH. On screen showed ~730 I think but you're right. There is no confirmation yet either way.

#147 Posted by Phatmac (5725 posts) -

I'm just glad he's alive.

For sure.

#149 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7240 posts) -

Really glad he is okay. That was pretty awesome.

#150 Posted by AiurFlux (902 posts) -

Shame he was only 40 mph away from breaking the speed of sound. It would have been amazing material for Guile's Theme.
