chairmenmeow47: Forty-Two: It appears that the Discovery Channel is showing this on a three-hour delay on the West Coast rather than live. Weak.Good thing there's the internet.what? i'm in arizona and watching it right now on both discovery and the live broadcast with no issues. discovery seems to be slightly ahead of the redbull site.

goodole312: trekkiecougar: Dallymo: goodole312: trekkiecougar: Yep, the Warrior and I have been watching this online and on tv (Discovery and Velocity channels are showing it) since one hour until launch.No one believes that I read about this in a Star Trek novel! Now I'm going to have to go to my local branch of the library and find the Star Trek novel that I read years ago that had Kirk and some other character doing skydiving that originated from a platform up in space.that was the cut opening from one of the movies wasn't it? i wana say generationsStar Trek (2009) had them diving to the drilling platform on Vulcan. I totally forgot about it being in (or being sliced from) one of the movies, thanks for reminding me. I'm still going to hit the library, I believe the space diving incident was in a novel involving some of the OS crew.some trekkie you are lol
WhyteRaven74: almost 20,000 feet higher than where Kittenger jumped from, or put another way, closing in on 4 miles higher...
Gosling: He's shedding feet, but at this point, what's a few thousand feet between friends.
James72: Which is closer to "live", the stream on the web, or discovery channel coverage?
Gosling: Map says he's on the high side of the ridge now.
fustanella: Did he just check his smile in the hand-mirror? *applauds*
