Felix Baumgartner makes history by jumping from 128,000 feet.

I tuned in just in time to see his feet emerge from the capsule. Incredibly dramatic jump. He looked confused and was uncommunicative during the pre-jump, then he tumbled for the first 50,000 feet or so. Honestly thought he wasn’t going to make it. Wow.
