A man will be attempting a sonic dive from space.

Fox News

I wonder if people on the ground will hear the sonic boom?

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Actually at those altitudes it is still. The balloon is in the most danger for the first mile then most wind sheer diminishes. There is a group near Chicago called Near Space Sciences (NSS)

Linky: NSS

They lost one of their balloons last Month and it stopped transmitting "ET phone home". I had it on my dish for a few transmissions, then the next hour nothing. Lost Balloon page.
