    LIVE now 23 mile skydive

    Anybody else watching this live on the Discovery channel? They just launched the balloon and he is beginning his ascent to 23 miles. You can also watch live here: Red Bull Stratos - YouTube
    Pretty crazy stuff! Going to be crazy seeing him break the sound barrier during free fall.

    Watching, he just got high enough where he can jump out if something goes wrong.

    It's going to take ~90-95 minutes to get to altitude.

    Yeah, I was just going to say, this may take awhile to get to 23 miles.

    Yes, I believe they said its at least a 10 second delay or maybe even 20 seconds for that exact reason. So, if it cuts out, we know something went wrong.

    so you're telling me if all of a sudden discovery bails out to a re-run of mythbusters, that dude went down in a fireball of death?

    The question is: Do I want to watch someone die? The answer to that is inevitably yes.

    it's for the same reason that I watch that stupid Red bull challenge on NYE every year, just hoping one of those hipsters crashes and burns.
