Haven't been following this very closely but if he has helmet cameras or anything like that, what time (roughly) will he be jumping with respect to launch time? I won't be in bed until ~2:00am and I don't really want to go about tomorrow on only 3 hours of sleep.

Temperature decreases with altitude within the troposphere, increases with altitude within the stratosphere, decreases with altitude within mesosphere and increases with altitude within the exosphere
