Falling From Space

It's not often that I get impressed by modern technology, frankly most of it is over my head, but this achievement is beyond awesome. I watched it streamed live at the time, and seeing that guy stepping off of the platform with the Earth so far below him that not only is the horizon curved, but the Earth visibly is a ball, just took my breath away.

    and Joe Kittinger did it over 50 yrs ago and only now has his records been broken. What both of them did in their times have been awesome and take huge cojones. Imagine, breaking the sound barrier in free fall? OMG.
