Jump from outer space

14th October 2012

After a postponed jump in the week today is the day Felix Baumgartner will fall from near-space, 23 miles above the Earth’s surface and break the speed of sound in the process.

 

Jut to remind and warn you...

This obviously comes with plenty danger; his blood could boil, his lungs could overinflate, the vessels in his brain could burst and his eyes could haemorrhage.

Felix will be jumping from 23 miles up on the edge of space as he attempts to break the sound barrier.


Here is the live stream via You Tube (works better in Explorer than Firefox)
