Alan Eustace, 57, a senior vice president of Google and Cloud Appreciation Society member number 32,261 recently broke the world record for sky-diving from the stratosphere. The New York Times reported on this amazing feat quoting Mr Eustace “It was a wild, wild ride,” he said. “I hugged on to the equipment module and tucked my legs and I held my heading”.
The total fall was over 25 miles in 15 minutes – the complete story and video can be seen on the The New York Times website.
Thank you to Peter Dickman for drawing this to our attention.
