LOL Lainy! But I know what you mean. That was amazing seeing him standing there and looking down through space to earth, then he jumped!
Yep Joe keeps his record and well done to him! He did that sort of jump about 50 years ago I think but from a lower height, amazing still!!! I think that Felix had to open his chute earlier than planned as he was spinning loads then got it under control. I saw a program on it earlier today before he jumped and Joe is part of Felix's team. He was the guy that was talking to Felix over the radio when Felix was up in his pod before he jumped. Felix said that he only wanted Joe talking him through his safety checks etc as he was the only one that could understand and relate to what he was about to do!
Huge respect to both Joe and Felix for doing this. They said in the program I saw earlier that there was much scientific data to be collected from this one jump that would be used by NASA etc to help produce the next set of space suits that would be used in the future for space missions and astronauts etc. Good results all round I would say!
