NNoamfer - No he wouldn't. Gravity will only accelerate an object to it's terminal velocity, which is where the drag caused by the atmosphere equals the pull of gravity. Objects, like meteors, burn up because they are traveling extremely fast when they meet the atmosphere.

What's the difference? Anything over 50' can kill you.

Sorry, but jumping from 100 feet is much ballsier.

So at what altitude do you have to worry about "burning up upon re-entry". lol.

see Joseph Kittinger holding the records for having the highest, fastest and longest skydive, from a height greater than 31 kilometres (19 mi)

"The Man Who Fell From Space" I love how the technician in the red hat gives him the bird and then slaps him about the face just after he lands.

Let's hope DC can make things better than their crappy headsets.

That would depend I suppose on if you were stationary or moving, and if you had an adequate oxygen tank. Once you reach terminal velocity it's not like you can go any faster, unless you change your shape, but this would be awesome!

Not even close, Colonel Joseph Kittinger from 102799 ft in 1960. Redbull is trying to brake the jump record though. Check it out
