Did you know they didn't even invent the handheld calculator until 7 years after his jump!....sure he had the Airforce behind him and tons of cash, but the low tech at that time and the fact that his hand swelled to twice the normal size on his way up in the balloon ( and he just decided to tough it out and not tell anyone! ) make his jump wayyyyyyy ballsier.. Plus he still held out longer on the freefall and that record never got broken today. Kittinger kicks some serious ass.

BigmountainVMD I was surprised there was no "Pssssh, Uhhhh Felix to Ground Control. Red Bull gives you wings. And uncontrollable diarrhea in my spacesuit..."

ChiTownRon That was awesome to watch. This guy definitely has a huge set of balls. I'm skeptical to go skydiving. And this guy is jumping from outer space pretty much.

LyGuy Watched it live on Youtube, loved it from the moment the capsule doors opened and he was pretty much stepping outside into space
