How fast did he go?

I would think we are close to supersonic. The jet I fly is doing .78 at 45,000' at 280 KIAS. I would think a competent speed skydiver could do that...

Shame we may not find out for a while. A lot of good people put hard work into this.

Maximum speed would be Mach 0.5 to 0.6 for an exit from 80000 feet is what is experienced by a jumper in a flat and stable position.

Imagine space diving as a recreational activity, albeit an expensive one.

What is the approximate cost of a project like this?

Micheal Fournier quoted $10 million for his jump (one attempt ;-) ).

I've always thought it would be interesting to see a list of the stunts that Red Bull thought were too dangerous to sponsor.

Here's the list:

Yes, it's an empty list.

I suppose that if someone died performing a stunt for them, then they might not use it...

LOL - How many tries is he at now? And last time they "forgot" to hook the balloon to the basket?
In reply to:
With Baumgartner, its about promoting himself and redbull. Ugh.

See Fournier.

I'll give Fournier and Baumgartner some credit, they seem to be improving on Garnerin's business model thus far.

Blues,

Personally I think if Hogan had any stones at all... he would just do it himself... instead of trying to get rich off of other peoples efforts like a whiney little pussy.

Hogan's lawsuit is regarding Cheryl's jump project that never came to fruition due to a lack of adequate funding.

Redbull Stratos is back on line they just released new videos about the project. they can be found on YouTube and the Redbull Stratos site. there a few different versions of the same video out with small changes. no jump date given but my guess is it will be some time in august if it goes through. that would give them 6months to promote and recertifty alll the systems before the jump.
I am also curious how close Olav Zipser is to doing his space jump. Anyone know?
