According to The International Herald Tribune:
We already knew that some journalists think they don't have to know anything. On the other hand, aren't newspapers supposed to have editors?
Depending on weather conditions, Fournier, a 64-year-old retired French Army officer, will attempt what he has dubbed Le Grand Saut (The Great Leap) on Sunday over the plains of northern Saskatchewan, Canada. He will climb into the gondola of a helium balloon that when inflated resembles a giant jellyfish. A two-hour journey will take him to 130,000 feet - higher than any balloonist has been before.
At that altitude he will see the blackness of space on the horizon and the curvature of Earth below, and experience weightlessness.
