THE BUNNY HOP…

TOUCHDOWN!

YEEEES!!!!

What do you think? Will Felix Baumgartner survive his stratos mission?

Today Austrian sky diver/base jumper Felix Baumgartner will attempt to break the world record and become the first man freefall with the speed of sound (an estimated 690 miles / 1,110 kilometers per hour). To do so, he will be jumping from a stratospheric balloon at the edge of space, 120,000 feet above the Earth’s surface.

You can watch it live by clicking on the image below:

READY TO JUMP – HE’S WELL OVER 120,000 FEET

CAN YOU THINK OF ANY SONGS ABOUT SPACE? TWO VERY FAMOUS ONES ARE “ROCKET MAN” BY ELTON JOHN AND “SPACE ODDITY” BY DAVID BOWIE. DO YOU KNOW ANY OTHERS?

CURIOUSLY, BOTH SINGERS REMEMBER THEIR WIVES IN THEIR SONG!!! “Tell my wife I love her very much”, SINGS BOWIE, WHILE ELTON JOHN SAYS, “I miss my wife”.

HOW DO YOU THINK FELIX FEELS RIGHT NOW, AS HE’S PREPARING FOR THE MISSION? WILL HIS THOUGHTS BE WITH HIS WIFE, TOO?

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT…

  1. I hope he is going to take carefull of space traffic, after jumping. He would be crushed with some UFO! 😉

    • Yes, you’re right – there’s so much trash out there! Unfortunately the mission has been aborted. Well, there’ll be another chance…

  2. Talking about UFOs, have you listened the Ray Steven’s song “I saw Elvis in a UFO”? It’s very funny but… a little bit old-fashioned!

    • YEEES!!! According to the song, “Elvis he’s too good for the human race… we’re gonna keep him out in outer space”!!! GOOD EXAMPLE, JAVI. THANKS
