I take each jump one at a time, learn something and have a great time!

Balloon leaves Michel Fournier

Michel Fournier was left behind after his balloon was not properly attached to his capsule.

This happened after his first attempt on Monday was halted due to weather.  Winds were discussed as being excessive, but more importantly the clouds would have prevented scientific equipment to properly record the trajectory of his skydive.  This skydive is not just a thrill ride, but a lot of scientific tests are being conducted as well.  Most of the major news sites seem to be pointing at the winds.  But I think after costing $20 million to get this put together, there are some major investors that want to make sure everyone gets what they asked for (e.g. science community).
