I caught the live feed just as they were nearing the zenith of the flight. The craft was a bit higher than planned because Felix had problems getting the door to open. He had some problems spinning on the way down (couldn't control flight well due to the thin air) but straightened out and became stable. He had some problems with his visor fogging and seemed to have problems with radio communications which probably eroded his confidence a bit, leading him to deploy his parachute early and missing the freefall time record. He stated in an interview that he has to fight the urge to deploy the chute early.

Really, I mean, this thing was ALL OVER the internet, yet it took Tom's more than 24 hours to post about it.

Go stand in the naughty corner for trolling.
ofcourse its possible everyone with brains knew that already, this was just a marketing stunt nothing else. NASA did this in the 60s, if there was anything left to discover of scientific interest by going a tiny bit higher and faster then they would have done it already.

Seriously people, are you waiting for live feed? If you want live cover switch on your TV, or Google it or something. Tom's Hardware is a "newspaper", some news will pop up AFTER they happen, not WHILE they are happening.
