    They mentioned a few minutes ago that he might be jumping earlier than scheduled because of the reduction in wind speed right now.

    I don't know about anyone else, but when they said 84 year old Joe Kittinger (the current record holder from his 1960 jump) was the man on the radio with him per Felix's request, I got kind of misty.

    I can't even imagine what is going through his mind right now. My heart is beating faster just watching this.

    23 miles = 121,440 feet

    At least that's what google says. I'm no expert in conversions.

    There will be a 10 minute delay in the real video in case Felix dies. I am pulling for the guy.
