Jules Posted October 14, 2012 Share Posted October 14, 2012 HE'S DONE IT! HE'S DONE IT! Austrian fighter pilot and extreme sports pioneer Felix Baumgartner has succesfully jumped from the edge of space. His balloon took him to nearly 130,000 feet (23+ miles, 39+ kms) and he jumped with a descend speed faster than the sound barrier. A man, without a plane, went faster than the speed of sound. http://www.fadingcrown.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/felix-baumgartner.jpg It was amazing. This is the moon landing of our time and I hope you all watched it or will watch it. Oh, and tip my cap to Red Bull energy drink for being insane enough to sponsor this. Marketing and pioneering wise the best company ever. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
