I'm still not convinced that he didn't black out, at least momentarily, during that high altitude out of control spinning he was doing. Heck, I practically blacked out just watching it...lol.

Maybe it could become a new Olympic sport...24 mile high space diving. I can hear the judges now... "You know, He could have gotten a 10 instead of 9.5 for that dive if he had just completed that 550th rotation on his somersaults instead of just 549. And then of course his dive didn't have the flair of the Russian competitor who burst into flames as he hit the sound barrier. Something for him to shoot for in 4 years!"


In all seriousness though, it was pretty much one of the most amazing things I had ever seen.
