Would you jump from over 96,000 feet in the air?

An Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner has been preparing by making practice jumps for a week he wants to do sometime in the next month or so from 125,000 feet for over a year. Baumgartner made another practice jump this week where he left from 18 miles above the ground. Baumgartner left his custom-made enclosure hoisted to 96,640 feet by helium balloon.

During his 3 minute and 48 second freefall you reach the top speed of 536 mph. He opened his parachute and glider the earth 10 minutes and 30 seconds after jumping from the capsule.
