    Looks like something is happening now, preparing for takeoff.
    <ed> Apparently preparations take a while, so not much to see. </ed>

    The weather looked ideal, but I guess they know better. Can't blame them.

    That's ok. You didn't miss anything. It didn't fly.

    There's another window today for the mission. I won't bother giving an ETA, as they postpone it continuously.

    Felix reached 39km and jumped successfully. He even landed on his feet!

    Well done Red Bull!
