Today I watched the video of that Felix dude skydiving….from space! That scared the living Twinkies out of me. I’m afraid of heights. But, you would think watching this video from the comfort of my office desk would help me feel safe. NOT! He was wearing what appeared to be a space suit! He had to practice for a few weeks because he was claustrophobic. So, let me get this straight. You’re going to free-fall, something like 39 kilometers, reaching a top speed of over 800 miles per hours, breaking the speed of sound, and you almost didn’t do this because the suit was too tight? Very interesting. Watching it definitely gave me a rush. Afterwards I wanted to do a little research, because it said something about it being a record. I saw this and figured he crushed whatever the record was before hand. Not necessarily. His mentor did it from about 30 kilometers, reaching a little over 600 miles per hour. His free-fall time was around 4 minutes and 30 seconds, whereas Felix’s was about 17 seconds faster than this. Better luck next time dude. Can’t win them all.
