    It was oddly compelling ... If it had launched, I'd have been glued to  the screen.  Tomorrow and the next day I'm on a road trip ... might not be exciting on radio.

    They were saying weather doesn't look good for tomorrow either. I read something that they need winds of 2 mph or less. I don't know the area of Roswell at all, but that seems like a rare day for any place on the planet I have been. I guess they get such days as they did two prior test runs at lower heights but with same balloon.

    I wonder why they aren't doing it at sunrise or dusk ???

    The light then totally sucks for a live media event/publicity stunt, especially at that altitude.

    We have to hitch a ride to the space station we built.  Next, after a visit, I guess we'll be jumping back down.

    It made my crouch hurt when I saw him standing on the ledge getting ready to jump and reach speeds of 730 MPH.  I cannot stand heights.

    I just did some fast research on the big jump thing. He was going  834 MPH. Faster than a speeding bullet LMAO!

    Check this out

    22LR: 1300 fps (900 MPH)
    357 Mag: 1450 fps (990 MPH)
    45 ACP: 900 fps (614 MPH)

     
    Headlines should read:

                 "Real Life Superman"
    "FASTER THAN A SPEEDING BULLET!"
