Felix Baumgartner

Jumping out of a balloon at more than 120,000ft (36.5km) above Roswell, New Mexico, The Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner will attempt to become the first human to break the sound barrier unaided by a vehicle.

Baumgartners dive was aborted today due to 'gusty winds'.

yeeeah. from the height he's jumping from he will see black sky but i did make it very spacey :S
The low atmosphere is what allows him to fall so fast and go supersonic! :)
