• Freefall From The Edge Of Space

Monday, October 15, 2012

Have you tried bungee jumping? Well imagine jumping out of an aircraft on the edge of space, free falling 39km to earth.

AUSTRIAN daredevil Felix Baumgartner has broken the sound barrier and achieved the fastest ever freefall speed at 1137km/h during the 4 minutes and 19 seconds of freefall from an altitude of 128,097 feet.
 

Mission control erupted in cheers as Baumgartner made a near-perfect jump from a capsule hoisted aloft by a giant helium-filled balloon to an altitude of around 128,000 feet (39km).
