For those who are up to date on world-breaking events and things that are just plain cool... I'm sure you've heard of the Red Bull Stratos project, where Felix Baumbgartner would travel more than 24-miles / 128,000-feet (the edge of space) in a capsule via balloon and break the 50-year free fall record in distance and speed.
-Check out the mission and full-video of the amazing feat below:
Congratulations to Felix and the entire Red Bull Stratos team for an incredible mission, pushing the human limits and making history...!
Red Bull Stratos, a mission to the edge of space, will attempt to transcend human limits that have existed for 50 years. Supported by a team of experts Felix Baumgartner plans to ascend to 120,000 feet in a stratospheric balloon and make a freefall jump rushing toward Earth at supersonic speeds before parachuting to the ground. His attempt to dare atmospheric limits holds the potential to provide valuable medical and scientific research data for future pressure suit development, capsule creation and balloon fabrication. It includes retired United States Air Force Colonel Joseph Kittinger, who holds three of the records Felix strives to break.
