Skydiver Felix Baumgartner because landed safely taking place Earth following a record-breaking free-fevery individual commencing 128,000 feet. His parachute deployed fruitfully along the way.
In a casing executing place commencing a helium balloon, Baumgartner worked his mode headed before 120,000 feet (about 23 miles) — more than three times the cruising altitude of the average airliner.
With not anything but a crack suit, helmet plus parachute, Baumgartner hopes headed before be present the first perstaking place headed before crack the thud barrier without the protecting place of a vehicle.
The in atmosphere next headed for with the intenting place of height provides because a result insufficiently resistance with the intenting place of following immediately 40 seconds, he is estimated headed before be present uncontrolled falling faster than 690 miles before every hour.
“They’re going positive immediately great,” understood a controller taking place the ground, taking place a video give food headed broadcast live. “Right taking place track.”
After a weather delay of several hours taking place Sunday morning, the ballon place rose commencing its launch situate next headed for 9:30a.m. MT (11:30 a.m. ET), with Baumgartner in a casing executing place beneath it.
He approximately made an attempt last Tuesday commencing his launch situate in Roswell, new headed before the job Mexico. But because he because headed before come in his casing before the giant helium ballon place headed before finish inflating, a gust of current of air twisted the ballon place like a spinnaker, plus ruined it.
Baumgartner expects headed before throw amode two before three hours taking place the ascent in a casing executing place commencing the helium balloon. Then he willpower open the hatch, climb out, be present surprised off the footstep with a bunny hop, plus grow a crouched “delta” positing place headed before boost his acceleration.
He campaign headed before fevery individual 115,000 feet in fewer than five minutes, then deploy a parachute before the final 5,000 feet headed before earth.
The attempt because serious risks. He plus his team boast experienced how he bottle avoid getting intent in a unsafe “horizontal spin.” His life willpower too depend taking place the integrity of his pressure suit, because temperatures could cuff 70 degrees beneath zero Fahrenheit lower, plus the atmosphere willpower be present because a result in with the intenting place of his blood would vaporize if he were unprotected.
If he loses consciousness every individual through the five-minute plunge, he willpower live taking place only if his parachute deploys automatically.
Another unknown: the things taking place the group of breaking the thud barrier. although reaching such speeds bottle cause stress taking place an aircraft, planners before this be present surprised believe in attendance will be present insufficiently effect taking place Baumgartner because he will be present next headed for an altitude next headed for which in attendance is because a result insufficiently atmosphere with the intenting place of shock waves are barely transmitted.
Baumgartner is an Austrian helicopter pilot plus previous soldier who because parachuted commencing such landmarks because the Petron Towers in Malaysia plus the Christ the knight in shining armor statue in Rio de Janeiro.
He because been preparing before his latest next headed for five epoch — both physically plus mentally.
“You boast headed remember every individual the procedures,” he understood in an interview every individual through hard the jump. “You know you’re in a in fact hostile environment. plus you cannot ponder aboutdated anything else. You boast headed be present focused. Otherwise, you’re gonna die.”
The ballotaking place being worn is light plus translucent. The substance is only .0008 of an crawl thick, one-tenth because thick because a sandwich bag, plus it willpower adjustment shape plus dimensitaking place because it rises.
After Tuesday’s launch wbecause scrubbed, Baumgartner tweeted, “We’ve made it because a result far, there’s no mode spiraling back.”
The 43-year-old previous military parachutist is backed positive via the Red Bull Stratos team, which includes a previous NASA crew surgeon, record-breaking aviators, plus designers of innovative aircraft.

The pressurized helmet plus suit, which confine Baumgartner’s mobility plus together weigh 100 pounds, boast been equipped with sensors plus recorders headed measure everything commencing his speed headed his heart rate. Camerbecause taking place the ground plus taking place the casing are transmitting live metaphors of his attempt next headed for www.youtube.com/user/redbull.
The file such a be present surprised is next headed for this epoch held via Col. Joe Kittinger, who in 1960 jumped commencing 102,800 feet because part of a U.S. atmosphere crack open mission. extra than 50 epoch later, Kittinger is a consultant taking place Baumgartner’s effort, plus willpower be present the individual commencing missitaking place control who speaks headed Baumgartner greater than the headset right through the attempt.
After a test be present surprised prior this year, next headed for come again? epoch the two off course communicatitaking place with all other, Baumgartner told CNN he realized how much he relies taking place Kittinger because a mentor.
“Immediately you bottle consider how lonely you feel,” Baumgartner said. “I wanted headed hear the articulate because I am because a result worn headed this. Every epoch we boast been practicing taking place the ground, Joe wbecause talking headed me. So I am worn headed the voice, plus [it] makes me consider safe.”
Kittinger hbecause too been giving Baumgartner advice taking place come again? headed expect every individual through his attempt. example, he said, next headed for come again? epoch you’re next headed for an altitude because a result far above the ground with the place of you see the curve of the earth, “there’s no mode you bottle request how fast you’re going, because there’s no visual cues.”
He too learned the importance of patience back next headed for come again? epoch he wbecause making jumps, Kittinger told newspapers last week.
“On individual occasion, I waited 30 days headed launch a stratospheric balloon,” he said.
Space diving is next headed for come again? epoch a perstaking place jumps commencing a seaplane before spacecraft far above the ground enough headed write the Earth’s atmosphere. According headed a 2007 article in the Telegraph outdated of the United Kingdom, this furthest sport willpower sotaking place become a accepted daredevil sport immediately like bungee jumping plus skydiving.
In 1960 US atmosphere crack open capta in Joe Kittinger jumped commencing an altitude of 20 miles plus reached a speed of 700 miles although diving commencing space. Now skydiving enthusiasts want headed crack this record. persons who wish headed engage in this furthest sport must too be present experienced with the place of the consequence of death is very likely plus because a result far 22 people boast died although trying headed perform this.
