That is pretty wild / amazing stuff. Crazy for sure... How long is the ride to the top?
I assume the capsule is on a chute and comes down for recovery on its own? It looks like a pretty high tech set-up over-all.

Joe Kittinger, Jr jumped from 102,800 feet...in August,1960. Now he is an adviser for Baumgartner's jump. On the way from 1960 to today, Kittinger flew three combat tours in Vietnam and spent 11 months in a POW camp. Amazing man!
I've jumped from 13,000 and have the exact same question, and I was born in new jersey!
