Felix Baumgartner and Red Bull Stratos Experiment and Jump – Incredible

Image

I’ve been watching the ascent of the RedBull Stratos capsule with Felix Baumgartner on board.  Absolutely incredible with the visuals we are seeing as well as the statistics we’re shown.

128,000 feet up before the jump took place, that is just too much to even imagine.

The safety steps are interesting too, involving the de-pressurising of the capsule and inflating of the suit, and checking the parachutes will work.

4 minute and 22 second discent, and at times was going at 700mph!!!
