Skydiver plans to fall from space into Saskatchewan

Skydiver plans to fall from space into Canadian prairies...:

64-year-old Michel Fournier plans to exit his air balloon at a world-record altitude of 130,000 feet -- and jump.

Okay.

UPDATE 5/27: So much for THAT! Video link here.

French adventurer Michel Fournier's quest to set a world skydiving record may have come to an end after his $200,000 helium balloon escaped and floated into space without him attached on Tuesday.



HOW MANY TIMES have I told you kids to tie the balloon string in a knot around your finger!!!!
