A Typo Turns Felix Baumgartner Into a Time Traveler

MSNBC’s physics-defying typo turns Felix Baumgartner into a time traveler

While reporting on Felix Baumgartner’s death-defying, Earth-defying orbital jump, MSNBC let slip a brief error in their initial newscast. And while we’re none of us perfect, this error made us giggle with too much nerdish glee to not post.

We wonder if the rest of that headline reads “Landed Before He Jumped”?


Stubby the Rocket is the mascot of Tor.com. Stubby still remembers the time MSNBC reported that it had broken up with R. Patz.
