If all goes well, a jump from 120,000 feet should be relatively peaceful. As the rocket gains altitude and the atmosphere thins, the sensation of speed diminishes to nothing, and during the initial plummet, heat and G-loads are minimal. In fact, you'll hardly know you're moving. The drogue chute should keep you stable, you won't break the sound barrier, and the thicker lower atmosphere will slow you to a 120mph free fall. At 3,000 feet, you can pull your main chute just like a regular skydiver. And if Clark and Tumlinson succeed, the 120,000-foot jump record won't stand long, because theoretically, jumping from 60 miles shouldn't be much harder. "If Carmack delivers the vehicle and we deliver working suits on the 120,000-foot jump," Svitek says, "that's 90 percent of what you need for the 60-mile suborbital dive."
