I have booked to do an AFF next year, can’t wait.
Where are you doing it? I was due to do it last month in Florida but now not until next year due to the mangled arm.

It's dark and nothing is happening biggrin
At Hibaldstow as it is not far from me and very reptuable company.

my live feed is constantly needing to buffer, is there a low quality version or another link/site?
You can change the picture quality on the cog symbol below the video on the redbull site

That's 13:30 GMT which is 14:30 BST isn't it?

Is my PC playing up or is there no audio on the feed?

Yep weather hold. Going to be a while yet,... Not much happening on the video feed other than some pickup trucks wizzing around a big yellow crane.

RT @jaycosmic: I think it's delayed because they've realised the balloon can't lift off carrying his balls #livejump

The original US Army manned space project was called Man in Space Soonest - or Project Miss.

Luckily, it was more or less transferred to NASA where it became Project Mercury.
