Red Bull Stratos Live Feed

on October 14th 2012, record-breaking skydiver Felix Baumgartner, backed by a team of world-leading scientists, engineers and physicians, will take a stratospheric balloon flight to 120,000 feet / 36,576 meters above the Earth’s surface – and jump. The mission is Red Bull Stratos. In doing so, Felix will make aerospace history. Not only will he surpass US Air Force Colonel (Ret.) Joe Kittinger’s freefall altitude record – one that has stood the test of time for over 50 years – but he will also become the first person ever to break the speed of sound with his own body. Valuable scientific data and technological developments will be garnered throughout the mission to push the envelope of human flight possibilities.
