A leap from the edge of space: Steve Truglia on TED.com

At his day job, Steve Truglia flips cars, walks through fire and falls out of buildings — pushing technology to make stunts bigger, safer, more awesome. He talks us through his next stunt: the highest jump ever attempted, from the very edge of space. (Recorded at TEDGlobal 2009, July 2009 in Oxford, England. Duration: 14:36)
