Red Bull Stratos

Felix Baumgartner just completed the World’s Highest Jump from a point to a place on Earth. Called “Jump From The Edge Of Space,” Mr. Baumgartner and his staff described it this way:

Red Bull Stratos is a mission to the edge of space that will try to surpass human limits that have existed for more than 50 years. Supported by a team of experts, Felix Baumgartner will undertake a stratospheric balloon flight to more than 120,000 feet / 36,576 meters and make a record-breaking freefall jump in the attempt to become the first man to break the speed of sound in freefall (an estimated 690 miles / 1,110 kilometers per hour), while delivering valuable data for medical and scientific advancement.

Personally, I’m not sure I see the importance of this, but I suppose if I reach into my 13-year-old body, I can remember how excited I was to see Evil Knivel jump a whole bunch of cars, and then eventually use something called a “Skycycle” to jump the Grand Canyon.

Ok. If I think of it from that perspective, I get it.

Nice. Very nice.

Stay tuned.
