helmet heater not working

Guessing that as it is -47 degrees F outside his head would turn in to a block of ice pretty quickly if his helmet heater wasn't working?

Is there a chance this could be aborted if they don't sort that out?

The minute he steps on to the outside plate my vertigo will have well and truly kicked in


I'm just wondering what the abort procedure would be at this height!

He's tweeting from the capsule!

Presumably he is not with O2

Only caught it from around 16000ft but been watching it since, really enjoying the images from up there. The near tranquillity of the capsule as it rises against the earths curvature is awesome. Looking forward to the jump!!

They're still "trouble shooting" the problem with visor. Might be an idea to fix that

Having been rubbing deep heat on my shoulder this weekend, I can see how that would work..............

I spent the day on the couch sleeping off a hangover. I felt bad. This makes me feel worse.
