Default Re: Random Thoughts

Found an article on the sky diver on the ABC website - 36 kms free fall! Some good quotes:
"It was way harder than I expected," says Baumgartner. Recalling his final words before he stepped into the stratosphere, he says, "Sometimes you have to get up really high to know how small you are."

"You do not feel the air - it's like swimming without touching the water," he says. "It's hard to describe because, I didn't feel it because [I'm] in a pressure suit.
"If you want to judge speed you need reference points, or your suit flapping, and I had none of these points."
