Felix Baumgartner is gunning for the worlds highest skydive and on Thursday March 15th he jumped from 71,000 feet up. Space suit and all he rides up in a balloon and jumps. This is over twice as high as a HALO (High Altitude Low Open) jump.
Joseph Kittenger is an advisor on the Red Bull Stratus program and also a certified bad ass or lunatic...either or. He jumped from over 100,000 feet in 1960! Go to 6:10 in the vid, or watch the whole thing because its sick.
