This is the first I've heard of this. What's he jumping from. The page doesn't tell you.

He's not jumping for another 3 hours.

Gotta have some productivity out of me today before the jump

Are you getting a stream? Still says "please stand by, starting soon..." on the stream to me.

I'm getting a stream, but all it shows is the crane holding the capsule and a few guys walking around near it. The envelope hasn't even begin to fill that I can see.

Huh works in Chrome but not Firefox, although my Firefox is highly modified.

Edit: BTW I heard the ascent will take 2 hours or something like that so the jump is still far off. Gotta get work done.

The launch itself is going to be fairly anticlimactic. Any idea how long the ascent is scheduled to run?

Hey, are you getting audio? Everybody's lips are moving, but I have the speakers up so loud it's getting flaky, and I can barely hear anything.

Estimates are running 2-3 hours.

Am I the only one that thinks it's funny that they are launching a giant (weather) balloon from Roswell?

In historical context, no. The only reason Roswell is famous is because that's where the US military has historically launched a lot of balloons and done high-altitude drops.
