Are you guys following this Felix Baumgartner breaking the sound barrier stuff?
I’m fascinated by it. I discussed it in my calculus class yesterday and the kids loved it.
Is this thing whole safe? I’m guessing that what happens is he gets up to some crazy speed because of the lack of air resistance that high up and that he’ll then slow down when he gets farther into the atmosphere. Is that right?
(Almost went with “Up through the atmosphere up where the air is clear” but my Mary Poppins references never go over so well here.)
