New Extreme Sport?

If space tourism takes off (pun intended), I can foresee a market for extreme skydiving from the literal edge of space. Can you imagine that first step out of the cabin door?JoeKittengerJumping.gif

How about knowing that you will break the speed of sound? I would expect a video camera to be built into the helmet to record the jump for future viewing and showing off to friends.

Check out this video (found via BoingBoing) to get a taste.
