    I'm pretty sure going 36 km in 1 minute is impossible for the human body.

    The maximum terminal velocity is 320 km/h.
    So 320 / 36 = 8.88 km per minute. And 36 / 8.88 = 4.05 something.

    So he's going 36 km in about 4 minutes. That is, if he's going with his limbs pulled in.

    Edit: I do hope I got my math right. Could be wrong though. But 36 km in 1 minute is just impossible.

    Maximum terminal velocity @ 320 km/h is only at lower altitutes. From the height where he makes his jump there's practically no air pressure at all to slow his fall making it very possible to reach a much higher speed than 320km/h. There's a possibility that he will even break mach 1, the speed of sound.

    Was meant as it being live in 1 minute, but it was canceled due to bad weather.

    120,000 ft, yeah, not much air resistance up there, estimated around the 700mph ballpark figure he's going to hit.

    2.5 hour ascent, 10 minute jump.
    1) Load the amount of weight I would deadlift onto the bench
    2) Unrack
    3) Crank out 15 reps
    4) Be ashamed of constantly skipping leg day
