I don't quite understand how he's going to enter the atmosphere. Is he just going to let himself smolder away before opening his parachute? If he opened it before he entered then he would probably miss his destination by a massive distance.

That's pretty cool, but interestingly enough no one will really know about it unless he dies.

In a worst case scenario his blood could boil and his brain blow up. Or that's at least what I've heard. Did it get postponed?

I think it's likely that he will be sleeping with Hollywood this month.

Wait, he still hasn't jumped yet?

The fall was scheduled for Discovery and Velocity channels. I'd hate to be in control of either channel dealing with this shit. Completely fucked up the integrated TV Guide.

if that was a serious question, the balloon could be flipped upside down on ascent and he could die before he even got to space.

so, what you're saying is the mission won't be re-scheduled and red bull is just tossing it aside.
