The Man Who Fell To Earth

Yesterday, Felix Baumgartner became the first skydiver to travel faster than the speed of sound when he jumped out of a balloon 128,100ft (24 miles; 39km) above New Mexico, also smashing the record for the highest ever freefall.

I was out last night, watching a gig by Emperor Yes in Camden, but I did watch the footage online when I got home, and a lot of it just showed a white blob in the middle of a blue screen. I guess it was impossible to get any close up footage of Felix's freefall, so I thought I would draw a picture of how I imagine he looked as he plummeted from space...
