Absolutely amazing stuff. Love the drawl of the old man talking him through the checklist in that calm voice... During the free fal everyone's looking at computer screens Kittenger has a old fashioned stop watch in his hand...

Notice he pulled the chute a few seconds before he would have broken the free fall record? I wonder if he did that for Kittenger's benefit? The old man still holds that record.
