Felix Baumgartner to Break Joe Kittinger’s Record of Skydiving

Felix Baumgartner to Break Joe Kittinger’s Record of Skydiving

It has been reported that the project of creating 2,900-pound Red Bull capsule has just completed which would allow Australian skydiver Felix Baumgartner to conduct his freefall mission. The capsule has been designed at Sage Cheshire Aerospace in Lancaster.

It took almost five years to come up with the Red Bull capsule. The capsule has been connected with a helium balloon which is 150 feet above it. The capsule has been designed to break the record of Joe Kittinger.

Joe Kittinger made a record of skydiving from 102,800 feet. For the past 50 years, no skydiver has been able to challenge Joe Kittinger’s record. But, Felix Baumgartner is hopeful that with the Red Bull capsule, he would be able to break Joe’s record.

It has been informed that several tests over the capsule have already been conducted. On Monday, Felix Baumgartner would experience the capsule by climbing it. He would be jumping from 23 miles up from the sky to the ground.

Baumgartner was reported saying: “We are all ready to begin. It's so different to fly in a suit that's pressurized. Once I lock that visor down, I'm in my own lonely little world. All you hear is your own breathing”.

It has been informed that before jumping from a height of 23 miles, Baumgartner would be testing the capsule twice by first jumping from a height of 60,000ft and then from a height of 90,000ft. However, by any case, the capsule ruptures then there is possibility of Baumgarner being severely injured.

Baumgarner is 42 years old and has been skydiving for the past many years. He is determined to break the record of Joe Kittinger and is taking his help in accomplishing his aims.
