Also, found this cool picture of the scale of the jump:

Felix Baumgartner space jump freefall scale gif

Neil deGrasse Tyson says:

The "Edge of Space" jump: A corresponding fall to a schoolroom globe begins 1 millimeter above its surface. I'm just saying.

That's the challenge of scale. 23 miles is a long way to fall for a human, but it's nothing compared with the size of Earth.

I still like watching the Felix FreeFall gifs.
