RED BULL STRATOS | Mission To The Edge Of Space - Trailer

The latest groundbreaking project from our friends over at Red Bull.
You may just pass out from watching it. Talk about a rush...

The mission will take our renowned athlete, Felix Baumgartner, to at least 120,000 feet above the earth, to the very edge of Space. From there, he will attempt a stratospheric free fall jump - the longest in the history of man - and hopefully will become the first human to break the speed of sound with his own body. We are extremely excited about the possibilities of Red Bull Stratos, a mission to overcome limits which have existed for almost fifty years, ever since the heroic achievement of the young US Air Force test pilot, Joe Kittinger, with his 1960 ‘Excelsior’ mission.

Red Bull Stratos will attempt to make history and deliver valuable learnings for medical and scientific advancement that will aid the exploration of space in future years. In addition, a possible four world records are at stake. Felix will attempt to jump from higher, for longer, falling further and faster than any human before him. It is a complex and challenging undertaking, truly a step into the unknown. Red Bull and Felix have brought together the most outstanding group of scientists to take on this challenge, all leaders in their fields of physiology, aerospace medicine, engineering, aeronautics, stratospheric balloon flight and pressure suit development.
