"Felix Baumgartner will undertake a stratospheric balloon flight to more than 120,000 feet / 36,576 meters and make a record-breaking freefall jump in the attempt to become the first man to break the speed of sound in freefall (an estimated 690 miles / 1,110 kilometers per hour), while delivering valuable data for medical and scientific advancement"

Me neither Colin.  I was worried that balloon was going to pop, and the capsule plunge back to earth. :o

I can't decide if he's a hero or a total nutter who wants locking up for his own safety ...
