Man tempts death in longest skydive ever above Earth

The Red Bull sponsored skydive from the stratosphere above Earth was aborted due to gusty winds.

The next launch will be tomorrow but organizers warn that weather conditions are looking unfavorable for tomorrow’s launch as well.

A balloon will carry a skydiver miles above the earth near the edge of space where he will jump back to Earth in a specially designed space suit.

Our correspondent Moose tells us that he is disappointed he wasn’t able to see a crispy, frozen, corpse fall to earth today.
