Nice.. Can't wait for an official confirmation.. Pretty cool that he went over 39km.. I was aiming for 40 lol.. To beat the freefall length record they can put him up to a much lower height and convert that contraption into a wingsuit. The aim was to beat a speed record and the two don't work hand in hand.
Yeah, his face shield fogged up and there was no audible communication during that period of the descent. I had the impression that there was no alternate plan to determine when to open the parachute, so FB went ahead and pulled the cord.
Overall communication was pretty unprofessional. This became readily apparent during descent. Communication protocols and contingencies need to be established.
It was pretty cool the way they were able to keep a camera on him during the entire jump.
