Felix Baumgartner is a truly remarkable person.
Like Malala Yousufzai in Pakistan.

Listen to the classic Stranglers tune ‘No More Heroes’ which gives their views on it all.
Do we still need heroes or is it just about the limits of our own bravery? It takes courage to leap out of a balloon at 128,000 feet or tell someone they are wrong and you think you will be despised for it. The world needs more people like this.
No more heroes.
Just you and me.
