It's set to happen as I write this.  A person is set to jump from 120,000 feet, technically from outer space.  UPDATE : It has actually been postponed due to weather, but here's the story anyway

This is courtesy of Red Bull Stratos.  It's actually called the "Mission To The Edge Of Space" , and the guy jumping is Felix Baumgartner.  He is in a balloon and preparing to make a freefall jump This has been done before on a smaller scale, by the way by a colonel. in the air force, Joseph Kittinger, according to Wikipedia and the Red Bull website.

This is exciting.  Or very, very weird.  What do you think?  I'll go with exciting.  Where is he going to land, though?  That's what I want to know.  I'm sweeping off the driveway just in case.
