Yahoo!: Skydiver completes jump from space

When I first read this headline I thought this was nothing but a huge pile of excrement from the male species of domestic animals, simply because 'skydiving' from space is physically impossible, and after reading the article it so turns out that I was right.

He sure did dive from the highest possible altitude the stratosphere allows for man to return to earth safe and sound, but it most definitely wasn't space, as the headline suggests. If that had been the case, he would have needed a serious heat shielding suit to prevent him from burning up and returning as a cloud of ash.

It was an extremely high space he jumped from, but it wasn't outer space; it was the edge of inner space, so to speak and he successfully completed his mission. Don't get me wrong; I think that is quite and accomplishment and I give the daredevil two thumbs up.

It does take quite some thinking outside the box, to even come up with and entertain an idea like this, let alone a lot of courage to carry it out. Therefore, I suspect the title of 'daredevil' may not be entirely appropriate to describe this skydiver.

A daredevil space cadet would!
