MiSSiON TO THE EDGE OF SPACE For New WORLD RECORDS

~ Tuesday 9th October 2012 

Red Bull Stratos and Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner are on a mission to break a World record, with a 39km (128,097 ft) skydive over Roswell, New Mexico, USA.

The Red Bull Stratos: Mission To The Edge Of Space will see Felix Baumgartner ascend 39km (128,097 ft) over Roswell, New Mexico in a helium balloon, then free falling to Earth from the balloon for 5 to 6 minutes, until the parachute is pulled, and contact is made with the ground after 10 minutes. If all is successful, Felix Baumgartner will break the sound barrier, and become the first human to do so without vehicular power. A successful jump will also result in Felix breaking 3 more world records; the highest manned balloon flight, the highest altitude jump, and the longest time in free fall. The latter 2 records are held by retired United States Air Force Colonel Joe Kittinger.

Red Bull Stratos and the mission to the edge of space, is attempting to transcend human limits that have existed for 50 years. Felix Baumgartner is supported by a team of experts, and plans to ascend to 120,000 feet in a stratospheric balloon, then make a freefall jump to earth at supersonic speeds, before parachuting to the ground. This mission attempt holds the potential to provide valuable medical and scientific research data for future pioneers. The Red Bull Stratos team brings consists of the leading minds in aerospace medicine, balloon fabrication, capsule creation, engineering and pressure suit development. It also includes retired United States Air Force Colonel Joseph Kittinger, who holds 3 of the records Felix Baumgartner will attempt to break. Joe Kittinger‘s record jump from 102,800 ft in 1960 was done when no one knew if a human could survive a jump from the edge of space. Joe also had taken a balloon to 97,000 feet in Project ManHigh, and survived a drogue mishap during a jump from 76,400 feet in Excelsior I. Joe’s helium balloon was launched from the back of a truck. He wore a pressurized suit in an open, unpressurized gondola. The Scientific data captured from Joe Kittinger‘s jump was shared with U.S. research personnel for development of the space program.

LAUNCH ABORTED ~ Tuesday 9th October 2012
The launch of the Red Bull Stratos capsule was stopped at 11:42 a.m. local time in Roswell, New Mexico, just before Felix Baumgartner’s massive 30 million cubic foot balloon had been fully inflated, ready for take off. The Red Bull Stratos team postponed the launch due to strong winds at 700 feet, at the balloon’s top, while waiting for the right weather.
