Well done that man! Hope the instruments all worked ok, so NASA can put the data to good use.

The guy is half way to getting the title of Astronaut, since He has conquered 23 miles, to get to be an Astronaut someone would have to be at or above 50 miles, but I'm not sure 50 miles in a suit can be done or if that would involve reentry heat, plus the speeds would be greater than at 23 miles, how much I don't know, or even if there would be any gravity to attract one to the Earth at that height...
