Felix Baumgartner will attempt to break the sound barrier in a freefall on Tuesday, October 9th, with a jump out of a space capsule from 120,000 feet / 36,576 meters high. He has prepared for the effort over five long years – but intense anticipation may make the last 24 hours before takeoff the most challenging of all.
When Felix Baumgartner wakes up, 24 hours before the highest jump mankind has ever seen, it will be with the knowledge that he has done everything he possibly can to prepare for his freefall from the edge of space. So as he waits for the countdown, the most important thing Baumgartner can do is rest and save his energy for the long night of activities that will precede the dawn launch of his mammoth balloon.
A kind of jump that was never attempted by mankind before is definitely something interesting to witness! Watch it live on the day of the jump, tomorrow, on redbullstratos.com
