Seeing the Big Picture Part 2

This is an update to my last blog entry about Michel Fournier, the French parachutist who plans to set the world record for skydiving by freefalling from 40 kilometres up!

After some earlier concerns about weather conditions, the team have decided to go ahead with the jump this morning. Here is a Canadian Press article which will be of historical interest in a few hours when we find out how Michel fared with this unusual and dangerous task. I will post a Part 3 to this entry when we know more.


Update: A few hours after this post, the team decided that wind conditions were not quite what they needed, so the jump has been postponed again until tomorrow. A newswire story about the decision is here.

Next: Seeing the Big Picture Part 3
