Almost 50 years ago, Joe Kittinger parachuted from space to Earth. As part of Project Excelsior, he made 3 jumps from a little gondola lifted by helium balloons. The last jump was from 102,800 feet up. That's 19.46 miles. Watch the 5 minute video here.

New links added to the sidebar: Reason.com and Reason.tv

I have been reading and viewing Reason for some time. They feature news, culture, politics, essays and more from a libertarian perspective - " Free Minds and Free Markets."

Here are some other videos that I like but will just give the links.
