Breaking speed of sound with nothing but a free fall suit on!

Other records: Highest jump, longest lasting free fall and highest elevation for a manned balloon.

This is going to be awesome. And terrifying. The entire fall, I'm just going to be wondering how long it takes for something to go awry. I hope it doesn't...but something just doesn't feel right.

they say right now that the heating for the faceplate visor is not working, which is a very big deal, because it could cause his visor to fog and ice up
