Default Big space jump set for today

Fearless Felix is going to try again today.
Coverage is on the Discovery Channel starting at 8:00 AM central time.
This promises to be good!

He's down safe. Got the altitude but not free fall time.

Note: They're still having to confirm whether he broke mach. I'd bet he just barely did.
Did any one notice the flat spin he got in to?

He was confirmed to break Mach 1 (1.24). :-) I noticed the spin as well.. got worried.

Pretty awesome. I watched the live stream of it earlier. It looks like red bull isn't going to release any more of the onboard footage though. They keep taking down this video whenever it gets posted to youtube.

Congratulations to him.
