    The 43-year-old skydiver from Austria began his descent 128,100 feet (or 24 miles) above New Mexico. The previous record of 102,800 feet, set by Joseph Kittinger, had stood since 1960. [youtube]FHtvDA0W34I&feature=g-logo-xit[/youtube]

    Crazy but awesome! It looks like he was on the edge of the atmosphere with two ways to go:
    1. bounce off and go up into space or
    2. burn up through re-entry

    Even though he was still over 30 miles away, it was an amazing video.
