What do you think will happen when he breaks the sound barrier?
Personally I'm thinking he'll pop like a baloon.

The capsule has just crossed 100,000 feet (30,480 meters), still another 20,000 feet to go. Beautiful view of the planet and above only a deep black sky.

And I will see my dream come alive at last
I will touch the sky
And they're not gonna hold me down no more
No they're not gonna change my mind

'Cause I've got faith of the heart
I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got faith to believe
I can do anything
I've got strength of the soul
And no one's gonna bend or break me
I can reach any star
I've got faith, I’ve got faith, faith of the heart

Now coming up on and surpassing the previous altitude record (113,740 ft in 1961) for a manned balloon flight in a minute or so...

There is reportedly an issue with the heating for the faceplate, which could present a problem for the jump Shocked ..the mission is still continuing for the moment, however.

It seems a decision has been made and he would make the jump after all, even if the faceplate issue is not solved.

They're doing the egres checklist...
