3 hour rise, 5 minute fall.

It would totally be worth it.

issue hasn't been fixed yet. They are still trying to troubleshoot the problem. And it's only the heat in his visor.

Do you realize how serious of an issue it is?

Once he steps out, this visor will be covered in ice instantly.

Yeah, I know that. It's just someone said earlier "problem with the heat". I was just being more specific. I don't mean "only" as a small problem. Any problem that happens is a "big" problem.

Is the altitude they're showing above sea level or above the ground in NM?

Roswell's like 3,500 ft above sea level. Distance to the ground is most relevant to Felix, but distance above sea level seems most relevant to the records and science.

When they launched his starting altitude was around 3500 ish. So they are going off of sea level

Interesting to watch temperature change as the altitude rises. From negative 100 to being 14.

Kittinger just said they were at 100,000 feet, and he has 28,000 more feet to go? Did I mishear him? The monitor says he is at 127,000+ feet

They were matching capsule psi with outside psi. At that time he was at 100,000 ft psi inside the capsule.
