Felix Baumgartner has made history yesterday. He jumped from 128,100feet and reached an estimated speed of 1.24 mach - supersonic! He survived to tell the story of the jump no human ever done before him.
Felix Baumgartner Successful Space Jump had Scary Moment
Felix Baumgartner successfully completed the Red Bull Stratos mission. He jumped from 128,100ft and reached Mach 1.24. This speed is though still an estimate. The data needs to be analyzed before it becomes official that Felix Baumgartner is the first human to reach supersonic speed without a vehicle. The Austrian daredevil had though a scary moment during the free-fall that could have killed him.
He said: "The exit was perfect but then I started spinning slowly. I thought I’d just spin a few times and that would be that, but then I started to speed up. It was really brutal at times. I thought for a few seconds that I’d lose consciousness. I didn’t feel a sonic boom because I was so busy just trying to stabilize myself. We’ll have to wait and see if we really broke the sound barrier. It was really a lot harder than I thought it was going to be."
There was a also a small technical issue that almost cancelled the mission. His visor heater had power issues.
Felix Baumgartner for sure already broke two records: the highest freefall and highest manned balloon flight. Funny enough Joe Kittinger keeps the record of longest freefall.
