    Today, the launch of the Red Bull Stratos capsule had to be stopped at 11:42 a.m. local time in Roswell, New Mexico just before Felix Baumgartner's giant 30 million cubic foot balloon had been fully inflated and made ready for take off. From early morning the team postponed the launch due to strong winds at 700 feet - the balloon's top - waiting for the right weather window to open. The launch was scheduled for 11:40 a.m., the balloon inflation had begun, and then gusty winds picked up and made a launch impossible.

    If he dies I can't say I didn't see it coming lol

    that being said...he has a pressurized suit on...so he might actually survive. So when it's all said and done it will be one of two things.

    Science at its finest....or....Natural Selection at work! lel

    Seriously, travelling at speed of light will be too much pressure for his head inside that helmet. And even if he does survive to pull his parachute, he better hope he has some strong parachute since most would tear when being deployed.

    Oh another thing....I always thought there was a certain speed an object or person would reach and stay there due to air resistance....will this guy have some jet boosters or something? lol

    Air density varies with altitude. The higher up you go the lesser the air resistance. The thicker atmosphere will eventually slow him down and allow him to pull the parachute.
