I’m not letting Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Tweet ruin my Felix high: “The “Edge of Space” jump: A corresponding fall to a schoolroom globe begins 1 millimeter above its surface. I’m just saying.”
Sure, maybe it wasn’t ‘space’ but it was a pretty nerve-racking feat. You can see a tiny blip in this video that looks like a spinning, very far away speck plummeting to Earth at a tremendous rate. There were a couple hiccups, including Baumgartner saying his helmet wasn’t heating up during the asscnet, and of course the several days of delays. At least he didn’t get halfway up and realize he’d forgotten his chute; that would have been rough.Tags: red bull, Videos, Xtreme!
