By D.E.Levine

Who among us hasn't had the dream of doing something extraordinary and perhaps a bit revolutionary?

Alan Eustace. a Google executive, had a dream of jumpingin a skydive higher than anyone else in history, and he set out to devote the time, energy and money to creating the best and most advanced spacesuit to allow him to make the jump.

A onetime Senior Vice President of Knowledge at Google, belongs to a corporate environment that flourishes with bizarre and uniques ideas and projects in the name of advancing humanity and technology.

The skydive from a height of over 25 miles, was designed to break Felix Baumgartner's jump.    To make such a jump it's necessary for Eustace to develop a special space suit, which has never been accomplished by an individual before.

It's an amazing story filled with a treasure trove of technological knowledge.  To find out whether Eustace is successful in achieving his dream it's necessaru to watch the movie.
