    Throwing passengers out of the balloon

    Yesterday, Felix Baumgartner set a new Skydiving freefalling record by jumping out of a capsule attached to a weather balloon, some 128,000+ feet above the surface of Earth.

    He, of course, had a parachute that worked and a reserve parachute, just in case the first one did not open. This is called having a primary and backup plan.

    AMD has none.
