There is almost something spirtual to Mr Baumgartner’s words to Popular Mechanics that striked a chord with me. He said “it’s hard to deal with the lonliness inside the suit. Because as soon as you lock your visor, you don’t hear anything from the outside, you’re totally by yourself. The only thing that you can hear (is your mind).”
This feat truly lifts the timid among us.
