I wouldn't be surprised if they go on to do that with support from NASA or another space agency...one of the main goals was to see if that would theoretically be possible (bailing out of craft)...it appears it is....
Next stop is the group that wants to SpaceDive from above the Karman Line - the defined boundary of space at 100 km / 62 miles. Useful for bailing out of suborbital spacecraft and during orbital launches.

... going from near on 3 times as high for a Karman line jump, I don't think he'd have survived.

833.9mph (Mach 1.24) and No, lets get him to 1000mph!
Didn't they say he hit around 800 mph though? Isn't that fast enough haha
