Absolutely amazing stuff. Love the drawl of the old man talking him through the checklist in that calm voice... During the free fal everyone's looking at computer screens Kittenger has a old fashioned stop watch in his hand...

Notice he pulled the chute a few seconds before he would have broken the free fall record? I wonder if he did that for Kittenger's benefit? The old man still holds that record.

Could be, but I doubt he could have known how fast he was going with all the commotion around him. I think he stated that his visor was fogging up and that's why he pulled the shoot early.


I was panicking though when he was spinning around like a helicopter.

I'd be curious to know this as well. My guess is there needs to be atmosphere to create a sonic boom, only a guess though.

Washington Post:

Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner fell to Earth from 24 miles up Sunday, enrapturing millions of people following a live feed of his stunt as he became the first human being to travel faster than the speed of sound without the assistance of a craft.

During a four-minute, 20-second free fall, he reached a speed of Mach 1.24 or 833.9 miles per hour, according to an official with the National Aeronautic Association.

The data on Baumgartner’s jump is preliminary until verified by international authorities, including those in Austria, Baumgartner’s home country.

It has to deal with air pressure. He was able to go that fast due to no air pressure/resistance and therefore no sonic boom. Obviously he slowed down to terminal velocity as he came closer to the earth and wasn't going fast enough to create a sonic boom. Still a total baller
