Some of us are afraid of heights right? Well how about jumping from a pressurized capsule attached to a balloon after it rises 120,000 feet? Felix Baumgartner, who already holds the highest and lowest BASE jumping records must be the craziest cat alive! Felix will break the speed of sound (speeds of up to 740 mph) on his descent to the earth and then have decelerate so he doesn't turn to mush. Though no one has ever done or survived this without a spacecraft, Felix will be protected by a high-tech spacesuit and will have fifteen cameras and HDs hooked up to his thighs. The record jump will then be broadcast to a live TV and Web audience from capsule to ground. And who do you think is sponsoring this insane event? Red Bull Stratos Off course...because this really is the epitome of "it gives you wings".
