He made it!

He was supposed to go on the 8th but they postponed the jump due to weather.

I heard someone mention it on the radio today just in time for me to run in and turn on the television.

All seemed to go well.
There was a moment there just after he pressurized his suit and opened the hatch... I could be wrong but it almost seemed like he was having trouble using his radio... appeared to be giving hand signals instead, thumbs up and so forth.

Great camera coverage of the jump!
He got to spinning pretty good for a few moments there, but then he suddenly straightened right out!
When he got lower down in the atmosphere he started radioing in... the first intelligible report I heard was that the visor to his suit had fogged up.

But he came in for a perfect landing... he set down gentle as could be!

Great show!

Well that sounds really unbelievable, because I think its never done in history and this man is the bravest man of the world. Thanks for sharing, but please tell me where can I watch full documentary?
