I’ve just read this interesting article about the dangers of Felix Baumgartners world record breaking basejump, including the dangers of breaking the sound barrier with his body. From the start I’ve wondered what happens when you break that barrier during a free fall. Apparently not that much, considering the thin air at that height. Let’s hope they’re right!
Redbull also posted a new video about the project at Youtube yesterday.
Hopefully next time I’ll update it will be about the successful recordjump!
