Red Bull Stratos: Man Attempts Sky Dive from Space
Human beings always try to push the limits of what we can do. Years ago people would have never dreamnt of flight let alone space exploration. Now we are about to witness a human being skydive from space and attempt to break the speed of sound. This isn't the first time a human has tried this. But just not at this height. In 1960 U.S. Air Force Colonel, John Kittinger, jumped from 102, 800 feet. According to redbullstratos.com "Red Bull Stratos, a mission to the edge of space, will attempt to transcend human limits that have existed for 50 years. Supported by a team of experts Felix Baumgartner plans to ascend to 120,000 feet in a stratospheric balloon and make a freefall jump rushing toward earth at supersonic speeds before parachuting to the ground. His attempt to dare atmospheric limits holds the potential to provide valuable medical and scientific research data for future pioneers."
Out of all places to choose for a launch site. Red Bull has chosen to launch Felix's balloon in Roswell,New Mexico. The launch will take place at 6:30am.
