Record Breaking Free Fall: 22+ Miles (video)

Daredevil Felix Baumgartner plans on breaking Joe Kittinger's 1960 free fall record of 4:36-minutes.

Felix along with the Redbull Stratos team plan on traveling up to the edge of space in a pressurized capsule and balloon at the altitude of 120,000 feet (more than 22 miles). When he's got a bird's-eye-view of the Earth, he'll then take a 'space dive' in a custom pressurized spacesuit designed by the David Clark Company. His free fall will literally break the sound barrier and beat the record free fall distance and time with an astonishing 5:30-minutes.
