The Objective –
Red Bull Stratos, an objective to the side of room, will attempt to transcend human limits that have actually existed for HALF A CENTURY. Supported by a group of experts Felix Baumgartner prepares to ascend to 120,000 feet in a stratospheric balloon and make a freefall jump rushing toward earth at supersonic rates prior to parachuting to the ground. His attempt to risk atmospheric restrictions holds the potential to provide valuable clinical as well as clinical research study data for future pioneers.
The Red Bull Stratos group unites the globe’s leading minds in aerospace medication, design, stress fit advancement, capsule production and balloon construction. It consists of retired United States Flying force Colonel Joseph Kittinger, who holds 3 of the records Felix will make every effort to damage.
Joe’s record jump from 102,800 feet in 1960 was during a time when no person knew if a human could make it through a dive from the edge of area. Joe was a Captain in the U.S. Flying force and had actually currently taken a balloon to 97,000 feet in Job ManHigh as well as survived a drogue accident during a dive from 76,400 feet in Excelsior I. The Excelsior III mission was his 33rd parachute dive.
Although researching extremes belonged to the program’s objectives, setting documents had not been the goal’s function. Joe rose in helium balloon introduced from the rear of a truck. He put on a pressurized match heading up in an open, unpressurized gondola. Scientific data captured from Joe’s jump was shown to U.S. research study workers for growth of the room program. Today Felix and his customized team wish to take exactly what was gained from Joe’s jumps greater than HALF A CENTURY earlier and also press ahead to evaluate the side of the human envelope.
Felix Baumgartner –
” On a mission like this, you need to be mentally in shape and have total control over exactly what you do, as well as I’m preparing very extensively.”
Felix consistently challenges his personal restrictions while pushing the physical borders of human trip. In 2003, Felix finished an unprecedented flight across the English Network with a carbon wing, as well as ultimately started to consider an also bigger objective: the supersonic freefall. With a team of the globe’s leading researchers, designers and medical professionals behind him, Felix will certainly try to rewrite history and advancement aeronautical research with Red Bull Stratos.
