Can someone explain why that jump was so difficult?

He had to jump precisely because if he turned or something in midair, it wouldnt be possible for him to stabilize himself and if he tried opening his parachute it would just ensnare him in it. Skydivers can control their position in the air pretty accurately, but that's all through manipulating the air flowing around them. This wasn't possible for him because he was at such a high altitude that the air was so thin that he couldn't control anything.

Cuz he had to be shot to the edge of space. I dunno, money, advertisement. Didn't give him wings though.

Pic unrelated.

Like I don't want to sound like a douche, but I feel like I could have done it if I had basic parachute training.

From the video, it looks like he just falls, no fancy moves to control his speed or anything. And his suit would protect him if he lit on fire.

No you couldn't. you would have shat your pants and started crying when you looked off the edge.

If I had the funding to beat a world record, I would do it.

Yeah maybe you would if it was sucking the most dicks, but for this one, you would never be able

I sense that you are mad.

You mad?
User avatar #52 to #51 - danzoshimura (09/11/2013) [-]
No, you are just dumb. This guy is a professional, and you think you can just do what he does because it looks easy on a computer screen.
User avatar #54 to #52 - rplix (09/11/2013) [-]
That's exactly what I am saying.
User avatar #55 to #54 - danzoshimura (09/11/2013) [-]
And that is exactly why you are dumb.
User avatar #56 to #55 - rplix (09/11/2013) [-]
And you are a poop head that is afraid of heights.

If his suit had ripped he would've died. The suit was expensive, the apparatus he was in was expensive, and typically High Altitude-Low Orbit drops are really dangerous.

I'm not sure. Well, yeah I think absolutely anyone is physically able to pull of the procedure, it's just the funding and effort to be put up there I think. Though I do agree. He should have bust out some crazy mad shapes and twists.
User avatar #42 to #41 - rplix (09/11/2013) [-]
Starting a fund to break his record now!
