Red Bull Stratos

1

Not too sure if this has been posted on here yet, but it's well worth a look. This will be amazing, proper pushing the boundaries with this stuff!

In the summer of 2012, Felix Baumgartner will attempt a record-breaking freefall jump from 120,000 feet – 23 miles – above the earth as part of Red Bull Stratos: a mission to the edge of space. The attempt will take place near Roswell, NM, USA, and if successful, Felix Baumgartner could be the first person to break the speed of sound with his own body, protected only by a space suit. As no one has successfully jumped from this height before, it’s uncertain what the highest supersonic freefall in history will look or feel like. This animated video gives us a sense of what to expect when the history-making jump takes place later this summer when the weather is best for a launch. A live webcast of the Red Bull Stratos 120,000 foot freefall will air on redbullstratos.com

FELIX Baumgartner lost control of his bladder less than a second after he began his record breaking skydive from the edge of space.

The Austrian became the first person to break the sound barrier unaided while pissing himself with abject fear the entire time.

Sensors picked-up the first rush of urine when Baumgartner was 128,113 feet above the ground. Eight seconds later, as he entered the troposphere, he was in ‘free-flow’.
