|The Mothership |
Get sweaty palms just watching it.
He jumped out, I got up, went to the bathroom, washed a glass, filled it with juice, came back and he still hadn't opened his parachute.
It's really cool, but the "your move nasa" tag is dumb. NASA goes into space, astronauts don't go 39.045% of the way there then jump. Furthermore, astronauts get into an orbit. They are moving sideways so fast that despite their freefall, the curvature of the Earth keeps them from hitting. NASA had an astronaut freefall for 215.4 days before a rocket picked them up and brought them home. Now I need to shave my neck.
...redbull doesn't have a space program. this is not in space.
Joe Kittinger tag please.
I also know he did this fifty years ago, without this guy's technology or a red bull logo on his flight suit.
I stand by my pfft.
no, he didn't do this, he didn't break the sound barrier
merzbau, link it from your Dayvan Cowboy video
"Your move NASA?" Fuck you.
Yes, a dude fell out of a balloon and went really fast. Cool. That's a fucking paper mache volcano with baking soda and vinegar compared to the Mars Curiosity project.
Why is no one else seeing this: Why does he plummet like a rock if his upper atmosphere container is floating in zero gravity?
Wouldn't the weather balloon explode upon entering the ionosphere?
Christ this isn't the ionosphere, its the stratosphere, still almost 40 miles short of "space"
I'm going to have to take a minute to defend the "your move NASA" tag. Douchey? Probably. Unfair? Yes. But NASA's been limping to the barn for years now. Ever since we beat the Commies, NASA's had to put up with budget cuts and waning interest from both the public and the government. It's not really their fault, and they're still the best damn thing our government's ever spent money on (Lord knows I'm a neckbeard NASA faggot), but someone needs a kick in the ass to get things rolling again. Modern NASA's a cold fish, the romance is gone, and if a bunch of soft drink execs and a hotdogging extreme sports daredevil can win the crowds back to space with a super badass gimmick, I say, good for them.
NASA would never have put a man on the moon in the first place had it not been for our competition with the Ruskies. The Red Menace is gone, but maybe now they can fight a new villain, the Red (Bull) Menace?
The Red Menace has been replaced globally with the Red White and Blue Menace, inspiring several dozen new nations to kick their own asses getting into space away from us.
NASA should want to join them.
People not starving to death thanks to food stamps or old people not out on the street thanks to social security would probably take issue with your government money comment.
Honestly, nerds support NASA the way rednecks support the military. Any cut of funding is terrorist commie plot.
It's down :(
This is an add for sugar water.
