From the edge of space

While I thought it was very cool to rappel from the 2nd tallest building in Portland this takes the cake.
There has not been a lot of chatter about this incredible stunt in the Scouting world… but I think this is way to cool not to talk about.
A former military paratrooper from Austria jumped from a balloon from 129,000 feet.  24 miles in the air at the edge of the stratosphere.  WOW!
Falling at over 600 miles per hour Felix Baumgartner broke the sound barrier.. not in an airplane, not in a space ship, in a pressurized suit wearing a parachute.  ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
I am so glad that I got to witness this (at least via the internet) in my lifetime.
Learn more about this at the home page of Red Bull Stratos.

Now that is the spirit of adventure!
Have a Great Scouting Day!
