Awesome stuff. 2012-2025 will be a new renaissance in human spaceflight leading to Mars human colonisation by 2030.

We have the tools. Now it is time to do it. As civilisation hits a pause in the system because of peak oil, we will see the peak of 20th Century Civilisation in 2030. Then, after that, a new dawn.

CONGRATULATIONS FELIX AND TEAM.

    Stayed up all night to watch (Japan time).  Worth every second.  Especially with Kittinger as the com.

    OHHHH YEAH. That'll be you, though, right? (with me right next to you).

    The way Felix dropped off that platform at the edge of space. Stunning.

    I'll be with you buddy. GEO / MARS OR BUST.

    That was an interesting event. That spin made me nervous.

    GEO / MARS OR BUST.

    I thought it was unfortunate that Felix made comments against Mars exploration.
