Michel Fournier a French sky diver is preparing to jump from a balloon in the stratosphere and land forty kilometers to Earth. Fournier will be wearing a pressurized suit.
Weather permitting he will attempt the jump and if successful will break four world records; the fastest and longest free fall and highest jump and altitude record by man in a balloon.
The altitude he expects to jump at is 4 times higher than the cruising point of a jetliner. It has been a dream of Mr. Fournier's to attempt this jump and be successful after two attempts so far have failed.
