Congratulations Skydiver Felix Baumgartner, on the success of your 24 mile skydive. You proved that it is possible to bail out of a space ship and land on Earth safely.

The records are nice to have but the engineering was superb!

    Asked how he felt about his own records in the wake of Baumgartner’s achievement, Kittinger said, “Well, records were meant to be broken,” going on to say that “better champions cannot be found than Felix Baumgartner.”

    if a crappy enrgey drink company can sponsor so many bad ass things, makes you wonder why some other big companies haven’t stepped up to the plate? Nike, instead of wasting all that money on Jordan you could have invented the street luge or the flutag!
