JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The person now referred to as the 'man in the bubble' traveled to Jacksonville Sunday, hoping to get his large plastic bubble back.
Reza Baluchi is a marathon runner. Monday, he left Miami in a hydro pod bubble with plans of traveling through the Bermuda Triangle. He was aiming to run in the bubble, all the way to Bermuda, a thousand miles away.
Baluchi, according to his website and YouTube videos, helped design and tested the bubble over a two year span.
In the bubble, he had supplies inside like power bars, a GPS, a satellite phone, water, and Gatorade. Sunday he said, "Everything inside bubble, I had."
Baluchi planned to be in the bubble for two weeks, arriving in Bermuda mid October. He also had a schedule. He said, "Daytime: sleeping. Nighttime: running."
