"Felix Baumgartner will take about half an hour to get back to Earth during this afternoon's 120,000-foot skydive"

Which is about 22 miles.

Whilst on earth, it takes almost an hour on the 405 freeway from 10 to 101 and that's only 10 miles.

So it took Felix 30 min to get to our planet from outerspace and yet takes me 1 hour to get accross 10 miles of freeway.

Somethings wrong here.

I'm not exactly sure how he was able to fit his nutsack in that suit. But that sure would be one helleva fun ride!

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

How did he break terminal velocity?
I have just read/heard bits and pieces of this, but for a man to go 700mph+ seems deadly.

Where he jumped from the air was so thin there was almost no resistance. They said the first 30 seconds was his chance to break the barrier. But he was spinning so bad I don't think he broke it. That was something they were worried about. since there was no resistance he couldnt really control the fall in the most important part. But had to be close.

I think it involves a lot of wrapping and duct tape.
