Skydiver Felix Baumgartner planning 36km record bid

Post by TomW on Tue Feb 07, 2012 6:48 pm

An Austrian adventurer planning the highest skydive in history has announced that he will make the record attempt later this year.

Felix Baumgartner will jump from a balloon 36.5km (120,000ft) up, where a leak in his pressurised suit could lead to a rapid loss of consciousness.

He will fall so fast that he becomes the first person to go faster than the speed of sound unaided by a machine


Well I guess everybody's gotta go sometime so it might as well be with a bang. Read more here

I read things like this and wonder why a boy would put his mother through that. Sad

I think Darwin has a list for folks like this guy.
We'll add him to the list later...
