Pretty cool... I'm still not sure how he got to the perch for the jump off.

anyway... these records broken. I thought there were 5 total concerning the freefall.

AFTER becoming the first man to break the sound barrier in free fall - plus records for the highest freefall and highest manned balloon flight - Felix Baumgartner's mission to the edge of space also set new digital media benchmarks and pushed the boundaries of sports marketing.

Google confirmed yesterday that the stuntman's supersonic dive over New Mexico was watched by eight million concurrent viewers on YouTube, the largest in the website's history.

ABC World News Now : Russian Meteor Caught on Camera

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAHFew_ptjY

Of course it has everything to do with the Asteroid. With the speed that it's hurtling through space, it's going to "pick up" debris along the way with it's gravitational force. I won't be shocked if there is more fall out from this through out the day and possibly coming weeks.

That's what I thought. Cutting room floor material from The Thing or Men In Black.

Here's What Would Happen if a Huge Asteroid Hit Your City

Quote
Around the time people in California are getting lunch today, a honking great clod of space rock will be zooming over earth at a hair-raising proximity. (Not this one, as cool as it was.)

Asteroid 2012 DA14 will soar above the planet at a height of about 17,200 miles, above the heads of astronauts on the International Space Station but below the orbits of our geosynchronous weather satellites. The interplanetary cannonball will be so in our face that it might tremble with "asteroid-quakes" caused by the tug of earth's gravity; it's set to become the closest asteroid flyby that we know of since the 1990s.

Sadly for science, 2012 DA14 will not hit the earth and provide a wealth of empirical data on asteroid impacts. But we can still see what the ground-shaking outcome of such a pounding jounce would look like, thanks to this macabre yet fascinating simulator from the excellently named site Killer Asteroids.

The tool estimates the blast radius of several sizes of asteroids using data from Google and this impact calculator from London's Imperial College and Purdue University. To get it working you'll need a GoogleEarth plugin and (at least for me) something other than Firefox. Now, are you ready to virtually decimate some cities? Great, let's go!

We'll begin with Houston, simply because friends tell me it's a rather dull place to live. This is the estimated discus of damage from a "small" asteroid the size of a school bus. A hit from 2012 DA14 would be much more punishing, as it's about 165 feet wide:


Quote
Obliteration! Assume everyone in the orange zone is killed instantly. People in the outer yellow area will experience a minor inconvenience as their office buildings fall over like colossal dominoes. Crank up the asteroid size to "medium," with a diameter three times the length of a football field, and you get this blue ring of horrible first-degree burns:


Quote
Just for giggles, here's a small asteroid landing a direct hit on Trump Tower:


Quote
A medium-sized space rock would wipe out New York City and give Long Island and Jersey residents something more natural (and painful) than a spray-tan:

Quote
Hollywood has long obsessed over asteroid impacts witness Armageddon, Deep Impact, a bunch of crappy made-for-TV flicks, etc. Here's your grim wish fulfilled, Hollywood execs: an asteroid measuring 1.2 miles across (that would be a "large") drilling Los Angeles. If you live in Bakersfield, you'll know the disaster has occurred because your clothes will suddenly be on fire: Your toast Chip


Quote
One for our bruthas across the Atlantic:


Quote
The simulator lets you toggle between asteroid and comet impacts. How about we destroy Denver with Halley's Comet look how much harsher the destruction would be, thanks to the comet's bigger size:

It's not me... it's evvvvvvvverybody

dude, California has like a huge target on it's back, especially LA. If there is something major to be talked about, let's bring LA into the picture.

Alien Invasion, Asteroid Hit, zombie apocalypse... you've got it all.
