Been followind this for a while, he was suposed to do it earlier in the week i think but it was put off due to high winds. If he pulls this off without any issues, it will be phenominal, can't wait to see him re-enter and break that sound barrier with his head lol!!!

They did say but i forgot lol.

Although they did say that if there was a breech in his suit, his skin would boil so i guess it's gonna be extreme!
