Ah, Those Crazy Daredevil Frenchmen

Skydiver plans head-first freefall from the edge of space in dizzying bid to break Mach 1, Daily Mail

"He will leap head-first from a weather balloon 25 miles above Earth and plummet at more than 1,000mph with only a parachute for company. He will face external temperatures of minus 100c while inside his carbon-fibre suit it will be a stifling 65c - almost 150 fahrenheit. And most amazing of all, Michel Fournier is actually looking forward to it."
