Skydiver to jump from 120,000 feet

8 posts in this topic

Skydiver Felix Baumgartner is going to attempt a record-breaking sky dive from an astonishing 120,000 feet. In order to cope with the conditions at that height a specialised equipment manufacturer are designing a space suit that he will wear during the dive to protect him against extreme temperatures and to keep him alive.

"Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner wants to attempt a record-breaking free fall from 120,000 feet above the Earth. It's not the kind of jump a person can do with a conventional sky-diving suit and helmet. After all, Baumgartner will break the speed of sound during his fall. He will need life-support. "

In-sane...

Holy...

Think of the view he'll have. I mean he'll basically be airborne for several more minutes than anyone else who's skydived (spacedived?). Unreal. Kudos to him and I hope he does it. TLC needs to cover this story.

Just because we can do something... should we. Some people just can't say no.
