Congratulations to Felix Baumgartner and Red Bull!
The last time I had tears in my eyes was seeing the nation's Shuttle program coming to a close.
That day was subjected to taking a back seat to today. This was an Aerospace achievement for the record books and marks a point in history when humanity proved once again that it does have the ability to pull together in order to accomplish something extraordinary for all who live on planet earth. Today, ranks as one of those moments when I am especially proud to be a human being.
World Record Free Fall Time.
Without a hitch.
Congratulations Felix! Congratulations Red Bull! Congratulations Aerospace Community! Congratulations Humanity!
