When I learned how to fly I swore I would ride the plane down.

The article I read about it says he's going up to 125,000 ft. next month to break all the records set by Col. Kittenger in 1960...and Kittenger set his records from a little less than 110,000 ft...this guy is nuts, but then think about Kittenger over 50 years ago doing the same thing with 1/8th the technological capabilities we have today...fricken crazy, he'll definitely have no problems getting laid afterwards tho

Default Trying to rememeber??

Need to hear from some pilots of physics minded folks.

(1) Now this "breaking the sound barrier" must involve different speeds at different heights...... right?

(2) The speed of sound is around 1100 ft per sec or around 630mph at sea level (zero altitude)..... right? Does this "sound barrier" increase the higher you are above sea level?

(3) Also what about the density of air and PSI. Isn't the PSI around 14.7 lbs/sq inch at sea level? What is the density of air or the PSI at 100,000 Ft?

(4) Anyone know the anything about the altitude of our lowest flying spy satellite?

(5) Do "they" recover his "jumping basket" after each attempt?

I do agree, that would take some balls!
