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.

    Congratulations Mr Eustace. Why such subdued media coverage? You should be on every TV channel as Mr Baumgartner was when he achieved the record. What an achievement – shout it from the rooftops. Don’t be shy. My admiration sir.
