Congrats to Felix Baumgartner, who made it to Earth safely this weekend after jumping from 24 miles off the ground. It was the highest altitude anyone has ever attempted skydiving, as it put him almost out of the planet’s atmosphere. (He had to wear a spacesuit and everything!)
Aside from a suicidal Ray Bradbury fan with a flair for the dramatic, who, you may ask, would attempt to free-fall from space? Someone who wants to be in the Guinness Book of World records super-bad, or who wants that sweet, sweet Red Bull Stratos money.

Obviously, the best part of this is how Red Bull and NASA seem to have finally found a way to work together.
