Man Who Jumped from 128,000 Feet in the Sky Says It Was Harder Than He Thought It Would Be

How Is That Possible?

Felix Baumgartner has completed his sky dive from a capsule that was lifted 128,000 feet by a large helium balloon.  He is unharmed and now somewhat of a hero.  Afterwards among his many comments was that this was harder than he thought it would be.

Really?  He rode a helium balloon into the thin atmosphere where lack of air pressure would make his blood boil (literally) if he were not wearing a pressure suit, he had to jump out of the capsule and free fall, he would reach speeds greater than the speed of sound and he somehow had to land safely. 

What exactly was he thinking would be the easy part?
