His velocity increases steadily as he falls
His velocity decreases steadily as he falls
His velocity stays the same as he falls
His velocity fluctuates wildly as he falls
He has opened a parachute, causing him to slow down rapidly.
He has entered a lower layer of the atmosphere where the air is thicker, causing more air resistance (friction) that slows down his fall.
He has broken the sound barrier, which causes objects to slow down rapidly.
The air closest to the earth is less dense because of solar heat that is reflected off of clouds.
He must not have been as high up as was reported.
He had a special suit that allowed him to breath in outer space.
He was slowed down by the speed of sound.
Air resistance makes it impossible for falling objects to actually reach an acceleration of 10 meters per second squared.
