Felix Baumgartner reaches 536mph in latest Test Jump from 96,640 feet

Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner successfully completed a test jump yesterday in Roswell. He jumped from a height of 96,640 feet.

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.

Yesterday Felix Baumgartner came the Red Bull Stratos goal a step closer. Felix Baumgartner landed safely near Roswell, NM following a test jump from (preliminary) 96,640 feet / 29.455 meters, after 3 minutes and 48 seconds of freefall leading up to a 10 minute and 36 second decent. It's an incredible achievement considering this is the fastest and highest jump for Felix so far. It is not clear yet, when Felix Baumgartner is going for the actual record jump reaching supersonic speed. See the photos below.
