  1. Scheduled for a 1:30pm descent.

    Live stream available here: http://www.redbullstratos.com/live/

    For those that don't know, he's jumping from 120,000 feet up (21 miles) to be the first person to break the sound barrier without mechanical help (i.e. not a plane)
    He'll reach 750Mph whilst free-falling and can only release his parachute at 5,000 feet. :burns:

    Good luck to him, amazing feat if he does it.
  2. I'll be asleep when it happens :sad:
  3. It's in 2 hours? You're profile says you're GMT.
  4. Good Luck to him. [​IMG]
  5. I should probably fix that..
  6. I've be staying up till 11:45pm here to watch it, then bed time and then Bound For Glory in the morning :)
  7. Anyone watching this at the moment? I am. Expecting the **** to die though... haha
  8. Has he fell yet?
  9. Nope he's only at 55,000 ft, He's going to over 100,000ft in the Air and it's been 53 minutes, So it'll be in maybe 30 minutes or more till he jumps.
  10. 1:30pm ay?
  11. I'm not sure, it's 3:30am here and he's at 60,000 ft at 59 minutes so it'll be another hour till he jumps.
    So by the time this is finished for me it'll be 5am and Bound For Glory starts at 9 :upset:
  12. Your lucky, BFG doesn't start while 1 then it finishes at 4. :urm:
  13. yah planning on watching this. gonna go finish homework, watch this and BFG later.
  14. I'd be fine with that :p I don't normally go to bed till 3 or 4 it's just when I sleep it's usually impossible to wake me up :upset:


    It's already started ****. :dawg:


    At 90,000ft guys, only 30,000 to go so probably another 20 or 30 minutes and he'll be ready to jump.
  15. 25,000 feet left. Roughly 30 minutes until he jumps.

    It was delayed Crayo :pP
  16. He's nearly thereeeee
  17. Almost past 100,000, World Record will be broken in a few minutes!
