Supersonic fall– ode to Felix Baumgartner
He approached it like an Arthurian knight,
noble, courageous and slightly out on a limb. A big limb actually
128,000 feet up and no firemen with ladders here.
He looked calm as he ventured on to the edge, balanced himself and then
leapt. Only one more supersonic life left now.
