The RedBull Space Jump

4:06 pm in Trends by Jason Baskey

RedBull looks to once again, push the limits of human awesomeness by breaking the world record for highest skydive this coming Monday, October 8th. Austrian skydiver/crazy man, Felix Baumgartner will attempt the jump from almost 36 kilometers above the Earth. To be fair, the edge of space is still another 70 kilometers up there, but really who’s counting? Baumgartner will set FOUR world records before he hits the ground: Highest Manned Balloon Flight (120,000 ft.), Free Fall From Highest Altitude, Fastest Free Fall Speed (approx. 1,100 km/hr) and Longest Free Fall Time (approx. 5 mins and 35 secs.)
