I don't think he boomed - but got really close - unofficially it looked like he maxed around 740 mph or so. So cool though.

I know he said he was retiring after this, but something tells me he will pull a Favre (in a cool way, though).

They're reporting now that he broke the sound barrier.

So cool - he hit Mach 1.24.

Is there a replay I could watch of the jump itself?


Here's a low quality version.

No clue what his jump speech was verbatim, but I am sure all he wanted to say was 'f*ck it'.

That's insane. There is nothing in this world you could offer me to do something like this.

this is how I want to die. When they tell me I'm too old or when I know it's time, I want to jump out of a plane/balloon from as high as I can afford and freefall sans parachute

Check out his cam on his suit when he was in free fall.

After watching it I read all the things that could have gone wrong and what would have happened to him. Amazing guts to go through with it.

Now watch all the idiots who WILL kill themselves trying to top or match him somehow.
