Skydiver Jumps From Space at Super Sonic Speed Today
Wow! So this morning a man is going to skydive from space! Felix Baumgartner, from Austria will be fall to earth to beat a world record. Felix will be jumping from 120,000 feet above earth!
To give you a perspective of how high that is, planes fly at 33,000 feet. Hoping all goes well with his suit. If not, his blood could boil, his lungs explode, he could freeze to death or suffocate. They are expecting this guy to fall at a speed that will break the sound barrier. The jump will last 15 to 20 minutes.
O.K. now that's just creepy!
The Red Bull Stratos is a project conceived by several daredevils and scientists.
The main objective of Stratos was to break a 52-year-old record for the longest successful human freefall. The record was set by Colonel Joe Kittinger after a freefall from 102,800 feet.
The jump in over New Mexico and you can watch it live.
Many prayers and fingers crossed for Flex this stunt works.
