What happens if he vomits in his suit?
 
2012-10-14 02:10:38 PM  
I thought they expected him to tumble for a bit before stabilizing? That was the plan, no?
 
2012-10-14 02:10:40 PM  
He's good!
 
2012-10-14 02:10:44 PM

What a nice balloon. What crappy radios.
 
2012-10-14 02:11:03 PM  
His visor's fogging up.
 
2012-10-14 02:11:24 PM  

Stoj: I thought they expected him to tumble for a bit before stabilizing? That was the plan, no?


Yeah, not enough atmosphere to offer any resistance to stabilize yourself.
 
2012-10-14 02:11:37 PM  
CHUTE!!!!!
 
2012-10-14 02:11:39 PM  
Ahh He didn't break the freefall record. Damn.
 
2012-10-14 02:11:39 PM  
Omarion is safe.
 
2012-10-14 02:11:44 PM  
chute is open
 
2012-10-14 02:11:44 PM  
"Gentle roll" my ass.
The spin cycle in my washing machines slower than that.
 
2012-10-14 02:11:51 PM  
Chute deployed. The freefall record is still Kittinger's, but hey.
 
2012-10-14 02:11:51 PM  
Chutes open!
 
2012-10-14 02:11:56 PM  
Still didn't break Joe's freefall record, though.
Pussy.
 
2012-10-14 02:12:02 PM  
whew, glad that spin stabled out. Can't understand a word he's saying but,

OH DAMN the chute deployed before he beat the record freefall
 
2012-10-14 02:12:05 PM  

Stoj: I thought they expected him to tumble for a bit before stabilizing? That was the plan, no?


Yep, at the altitude he was at, with almost no air really no way to not tumble a bit and basically have to be like a gymnast to stop.
 
2012-10-14 02:12:05 PM  
Visor fogging up.
 
2012-10-14 02:12:07 PM  
"Yes, Felix, go ahead."

"Uhhh, I think I left my chute back on the capsule..".
 
2012-10-14 02:12:08 PM  
Uh oh
 
2012-10-14 02:12:08 PM  
He picked a hell of a time to come out of the closet.
/jk
 
2012-10-14 02:12:09 PM  
And then he lands in a swamp full of gators.
 
2012-10-14 02:12:54 PM  
"Keep talking Felix." "I'M F*CKING BUSY HERE MATE."
 
2012-10-14 02:13:02 PM  
Did he break the sound barrier?
 
2012-10-14 02:13:07 PM  
Yeah that tumble didn't look too bad. What they're concerned with is tumbling so violently he loses consciousness or gets injured. Didn't look anywhere near that to me, but they'll release the data I'm sure.
