Red Bull Stratos Test 1 Success!

Congratulations to the Baumgartner / Red Bull Stratos team -- Felix has made a test flight to over 71k feet, and parachuted from that altitude with a successful(that is, healthy!) landing.

His project is very different from mine, but exciting to watch! Direct link. Interesting also to see his mentor, Col. Joe Kittinger, who made several jumps from over 100,000 feet altitude in the years just prior to the advent of manned space flight.
