This summer, skydiver Felix Baumgartner hopes to hurtle toward Earth at supersonic speed from a record 23 miles (37 kilometres) up, breaking the sound barrier with only his body. He made it more than halfway there during a critical dress rehearsal, ascending from the New Mexico desert in a helium balloon and jumping from more than 13 miles (21 kilometres) up. [video]

This reminds me of the Star Trek: Voyager episode Extreme Risk where B’Elanna Torres was orbital skydiving at the beginning.
