Michael Fournier- Le Grand Saut ("The Great Leap")
(english translation but cursory french might help you probably on google as well)
He was supposed to jump today but I guess they moved it to tomorrow... anybody else think this guy is, well, nuts? I don't think a human being will fare too well breaking the sound barrier in free-fall... and he's not exactly a young'un. I mean, if he lives, it'll be fascinating, but... he kind of has to survive first.
I'm mostly curious about that suit... the site says it's made to withstand very low temperatures, but won't the friction generated by falling through the atmosphere generate rather high temps?
Crazy people... *shakes head*
