Spacediving.

Re-entry from space without a ship is not something to be taken lightly, although someday spacediving might save lives. A 60-mile freefall is possible, but would require a special suit and helmet. Rick Tumlinson, founder of the Space Frontier Foundation, and former NASA flight surgeon Jonathan Clark formed the company Orbital Outfitters to produce such a suit. http://www.popsci.com/popsci/aviationspace/3c082d2daa463110vgnvcm1000004eecbccdrcrd.html -via Metafilter.
