Felix and Red Bull Stratos... Mission Possible

"When you are standing on top of the world, you don't think of records anymore; all you think is that you want to come back alive." Felix Baumgartner

Felix consistently challenges his personal limits while pushing the physical boundaries of human flight. In 2003, Felix completed an unprecedented flight across the English Channel with a carbon wing, and subsequently considered an even bigger goal: the supersonic freefall.

With a team of the world's top scientists, engineers and doctors, Felix has rewritten history making advancements in aeronautical research. On October 14, 2012 he became the fastest man in freefall reaching a preliminary speed of Mach 1.24 (1,342.8 kmh / 833.9 mph), breaking the speed of sound. Final data for speed and distance is being evaluated by the science team and Fédération Aéronautique Internationale.
