Canx due to winds. I think they said tomorrow might be a good backup. I'm just going to keep checking the websites periodically.

About 60,000 feet - reports an issue with the visor heat. Controls are on - no effective heat. May result in visor icing up when he opens the door to jump - exterior temp close to -90F, capsule temp around +50F where he is now.

Mat and I watched it!!! I kept looking to see if Depends was a sponsor? I would have shit myself! WTG To Felix though, what a great feeling it must be for him and his family!!! Can't wait for my older son to get home so he can see it, if they have a video of it up online.
