Free Fallin’ from Space

We’ve lost our sense of wonder. Nothing seems all that surprising anymore. “Meh” is what people say about dazzling achievements. Climbing Mount Everest is now seen as a walk in the park.

So I found it amazing that so many of us tuned into Felix Baumgartner’s world-record setting fall from space. Baumgartner did a free fall at Mach 1.28 from 128,000 feet before slowing down and landing softly on earth. It was really dazzling…and for a couple of hours, lots of us were filled with a sense of wonder.
