Felix will hopefully (weather dependent and has already been pushed back 24 hours) jump from 23 miles up on Tuesday around 12pm GMT.

Thoughts on him & what he's doing? Personally never been more jealous of anyone ever, imagine how amazing that would be to do!

Mental.
I'm definitely not jealous but hope it goes well!

In reply to jolivague: Best of luck to him.

One of my favourite books is "Freefall" by Tom Read, (aka ex-SAS man, Charles Bruce.) It's about his planned attempt at the same thing, and his slow descent into madness while preparing for it. Poor sod topped himself after the book was published.
