Felix Baumgartner's Red Bull Stratos Jump

Posted on 10/14/12

Austria's Felix Baumgartner earned his place in the history books on Sunday Oct 14, 2012, after flying to an altitude of 39,045 meters (128,100 feet) in a helium-filled balloon.
 
Felix Baumgartner completed a record breaking jump from the edge of space, exactly 65 years after Chuck Yeager first broke the sound barrier flying in an experimental rocket-powered airplane.
 Baumgartner reached an estimated speed of 1,342.8 km/h (Mach 1.24) jumping from the stratosphere, which when certified will make him the first man to break the speed of sound in freefall and set several other records while delivering valuable data for future space exploration.
What an achievement, Konkrete team salutes you Felix ! One question…Does this guy have a shoe sponsor yet ?!  : )
