Red Bull Stratos

Red Bull Stratos was on the verge of space mission carried out by a group of scientists, Red Bull energy drinks brand, Colonel retired from the USAF Joseph Kittinger1 and the Austrian skydiver Felix Baumgartner.2 3 the mission had planned to climb to Baumgartner to a height of approximately 36 576 metres (120 000 ft) up to the stratosphere on RoswellNew Mexico, United States in a balloon inflated with helium before falling and subsequently descend by parachute to the tierra.4Finalmente the jump occurred around 39 000 meters. Baumgartner broke the sound barrier during its descent, becoming the first human to achieve this without a vehicle automotor.4 the successful jump, also made Baumgartner to break two world records most - the highest a manned balloon flight and highest altitude-jumping, but ultimately did not surpass the previous record for longest free-fall of Kittingerwho also possessed the leap to higher altitudes. The jump in freefall (prior to opening the parachute) estimated it would last between five and six minutes, 5 making the leap total (to make contact with Earth) lasted about ten minutes, but finally the freefall lasted more than four minutes.
