Red Bull Stratos

A fantastic challenge to a 1960’s world record is due to take place this year.

Felix Baumgartner and team Red Bull have spent the past 3 years planning the world’s highest, longest and fastest freefall parachute jump.

Felix will be taken up 23 miles above the Earth’s surface and will jump alone, aiming to break the speed of sound as he returns to Earth.
