The Austrian skydiver broke the world record for highest skydive by jumping from 24 miles above the Earth.

A custom spacesuit has been designed to protect Felix Baumgartner for his attempt at the world's highest skydive. The suit will protect him from -70 degree temperatures and low pressure at the extreme altitude and maintain the oxygen and pressure levels he'll need to survive at supersonic speeds.

Joseph William Kittinger II is a retired Colonel in the US Air Force and a USAF Command Pilot. Following his initial operational assignment in fighter aircraft, he participated in Project Manhigh and Project Excelsior in 1960, setting a world record for the highest skydive from a height greater than 31 kilometres (19 mi).[1] He was also the first man to make a solo crossing of the Atlantic Ocean in a gas balloon.

"In space the stars are not nearer, just glitters like a morgue." ~Most of the starlight we see, comes from stars and galaxies which have already died. "The whole sky could be black, and we would not even begin to realize it for another four years." ~ A nuclear physicist
