One small step for man ...

One giant leap back to mankind ...


I watched enthralled this evening as Felix Baumgartner started his journey hurtling towards the Earth at 834mph. Then his parachute opened and, five minutes later, 'Fearless Felix' had completed the highest and fastest skydive in history.

In doing so, the 43-year-old Austrian became the first freefall diver to break the sound barrier, as well as breaking the record for the highest manned balloon ascent.

As NASA would say - 'He had the right stuff' ...
