I have seen ET

Has anything happened since 6.30?

Miss Becks

Yes, cancelled. YOU asked me to get it stopped. They got my text!

Gary Hobson

Yes, I think the Red Bull website has crashed!

At least, it's not talking to me.

@Gary...well said! I know what I saw, but have no idea what it was!

Cancelled altogether or postponed till later today or another day?

I thought the balloon had gone up?

Gary Hobson

Cancelled for today due to wind.

And there also seem to be technical problems with the website.

Miss Becks

Postponed as far as I heard. I had to leave the room. He had wind problems.

Talking of that.................................you don't want to know

 Goodnight all! 

Pottie Pam

Hope you do see the Northern Lights, P. Petal. Too cloudy and too far south here.

Fascinating sighting, Figrat. I'm not sure these unexplained things are from other worlds but UFO's all the same.

I think the launch is delayed again because of the wind. Not a good idea to have beans for tea before attempting to break the sound barrier

UPDATE: Skydiver Felix Baumgartner's first attempt to make the world's highest jump on Tuesday (Oct. 9) from a balloon over Roswell, N.M., was aborted due to high winds that made the daring feat too risky. The project, called Red Bull Stratos, will send Baumgartner freefalling faster than the speed of sound from an altitude of 23 miles (36.6 km) above the ground.

Red Bull Stratos officials have not yet set a date for the second attempt. Further webcast details will be provided as available.

 

 

Full Story: Skydiver Abort

Whoever thought about inventing 'Copy and Paste' was a genius!!

Gary Hobson

Personally, I never believe 'official' explanations.

I know that the website crashed, or became unavailable, some time before this story came out. This story about 'wind' is probably a cover up for some kind of technical failure, or something else.

The cancellation might even have something to do with those unexplained white blobs.

Trust no-one!

Miss Becks

Are they sure they didn't know what they were buying geoff. Playing dumb sometimes works!
