If y'all were inspired, there are quite a few places in the NorthEast US of A that let the public do HALO jumps. Not close to the same though. Just wow.

That's pretty great. It's too bad he didn't have a camera on him, though.

I think they did have a camera on him, but that footage will be released later. Also, the "tumbling" was on purpose, slowing his decent. I don't think he go longest freefall, missed it by about 15 sec. Truly amazing, I got all misty eyed. "I'm going home now." A beast

It was? I was crapping my pants watching that, I thought it was going totally wrong. Hearing everyone cheer when he straightened out didn't help.

I don't believe it was. He was talking about correcting it during the press conference.

And GoPro hooked him up with some cameras, so the footage will be around soon, I'm sure.

Could have sworn he was doing a helicopter effect to slow down.

He also broke a record on the way up for highest manned flight, they were talking about it on his way up.

"I'm hauling @ss"

Hell yeah.

Also, helmet cam, shows him stabilizing from the flat spin:

And, unfortunately the balloon height record is not likely to be an official ballooning record, as regulations require that you land with your balloon for it to be official. Still, an amazing accomplishment in any light.

From Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flight_altitude_record):

1966— Amateur parachute jumper Nicholas Piantanida (USA) reached 123,800 feet (37,643 m) with his Strato Jump II balloon but due to being unable to disconnect his oxygen line from the main capsule's feed he was forced to detach the balloon from the capsule, abort the jump and return in the capsule without the balloon. Due to his glove's design, he was also unable to reattach his safety harnessess and endured very high G forces but survived the descent. Piantanida's ascent is not recognized by the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale as a balloon altitude world record.
(Incidentally, Piantanida died on his follow up attempt to skydive from space, suit decompression at 60,000 feet.)

2012—14 October – Felix Baumgartner in Red Bull Stratos set the record for highest manned balloon flight of 128,176 feet (39,068m) near Roswell, New Mexico, USA.[citation needed] This has not yet been confirmed by the FAI and is thus not yet an 'official' record (which would require returning in the balloon, not just jumping or returning in the capsule alone, see Nicholas Piantanida).
