I am here near Washington DC at a Starbucks watching, along with 3 million others online, a live feed as Felix Baumgartner ascends nearly 100,000 feet above the earth, hoping to attempt the highest skydive known to man-- about 120,000 ft, or 23 miles above the earth.
Call me nerdy. Whatever. But this is freaking awesome and going into the history books.
By the way, did I mention he will be breaking the sound barrier?
