....anybody else just watch Felix fall from the edge of space?
When he stood in the doorway of that pod about to fall all that way to earth the hairs actually stood up at the back of my neck.

Not too sure though whether to think "What a fall" or "What a fool"

I was talking about this the other day...when it was cancelled again... I was just wondering what would happen if he chickened out and wouldn't leave the balloon ?

Did he finally do it then?  Chris Evans was so excited about it all week on Radio 2 and it just didn't happen.  Was it a success?

I listened/watched  the whole two and a half hours of him going up! Took just over 4mins for him to come back down Lol
But yes, he's alive and well

I used to freefall skydive for a hobby, back in the days when I had both the time and the disposable income. I understand why he did this and I congratulate him for his courage, tenacity and skill.
