On October 14 2012, the Austrian extreme sportsman Felix Baumgartner jumped from a capsule in a free fall to the ground. On the anniversary of the Stratos project, a video was released showing the jump from several perspectives.
The video also shows the critical seconds when Baumgartner began to turn dangerously. In addition, you can see data like altitude, G-forces, speed and Baumgartner’s pulse.
Red Bull Stratos was a space diving project involving Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner. On 14 October 2012, Baumgartner flew approximately 39 kilometres into the stratosphere over New Mexico, United States, in a helium balloon before free falling in a pressure suit and then parachuting to Earth. The total jump, from leaving the capsule to landing on the ground, lasted approximately ten minutes. While the free fall was initially expected to last between five and six minutes, Baumgartner deployed his parachute after 4 minutes and 19 seconds.
