If you lose the Youtube feed dude and/or the one I posted above s***s the bed, click the "youtube" link in the RedBull stream window and it'll open the stream up in YT. Fyi.

about how long will it take him to get to altitude?

Anywhere between 2-3 hours depending on updraft and mid level winds.

adding the now 8am window for launch, that's a long time not to take a leak in the morning.

The first 1/2 hour and obviously the last 20 minutes are critical. Especially the former. The first 2000 feet is "The Dead Zone". Too low to deploy the cargo chute and for Felix to get out and deploy his chute. If something catastrophic happens between launch and 2000-2500 feet...he's good as dead.

I thought maybe he'd do an Alan Sheppard.
