Kirk's Parchute jump from space? That's so 1960.

The real 1960, that is!

I had never heard of this, but US Air Force Pilot Joseph Kittinger jumped from a balloon 30 km above the earth's surface.  For all intents and purposes, from space! MADNESS.  He even exceeded Mach 1 on the descent... why isn't he famous?

Also from Tumblr today, and awesome print of famous robots.
