That is really cool. I wonder if they planned that or it just happened?

In my early 20s I would have jumped at the chance to skydive. Now? I don't think I have the stones anymore. Anyone here do it?

I read in the comments that this pic was mis-identified as a shuttle launch. Turns out it was some other kind of rocket launch..and the photo dates from 2007.

Still cool.
