I used to watch this chaps progress in building a H2O2 rocket end then the site disappeared about 4 years ago. Any way I went looking and found in 2006 he was going to launch himself with a cross bow at 10G 10 miles up plus he has a jet engine for boost.

There are other links with equally vague and implausible descriptions of the "craft" BUT the interesting thing is, the jets are definitely pulse jets.
Interesting.

The youtube clip is of Jean-Marc Mouligné who died in a Base jumping accident some time after the catapult flights.
