Red Bull Stratos- 10.14.12
It has been quite the week, so, apologies for being a bit quiet. A last minute super packed trip to San Francisco came up, so jumped in the car and ended up barely able to have enough time to sleep let alone post (feel’s like a first i a while!) and just got back to Los Angeles, missing the Endeavour have its slow parade like drive across LA, but just in time to wake up and watch the Red Bull Stratos jump - LIVE! And it was mesmerizing… stunning to see the views and how fast he was freefalling! “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. His attempt to dare atmospheric limits holds the potential to provide valuable medical and scientific research data for future pioneers.” And wow - it was quite a sight to see even via laptop… See screenshots from the event moments ago on the next page, and find out more about the mission and the team at Red Bull Stratos!
