Austrian man attempts to break highest altitude skydive (12 Photos + Video)

Austria's Felix Baumgartner jumped out of a space capsule from an altitude of approximately 71,580 feet as the Red Bull Stratos project moved forward into the manned flight stage in New Mexico. The 42-year-old rode the space capsule attached to a giant helium balloon above the so-called "Armstrong Line." Soon, Baumgartner will attempt to break the previous record of 102,800 feet held by Joseph Kittinger in 1960.

    for all asking why there wasn't footage of the dive. think about it. if they had someone filming it, then 2 people would deserve the credit for jumping from that high

  • nope

    if he made it to 72 thousand feet, he would of saw immortals watching him jump.

    Didn’t Kittinger go through with it even though his glove broke and he risked losing him hand. Also, he did it like 50 years ago. Don’t get me wrong I respect the balls, but I think Joe is just more awesummm

  • Aaron

    Master Chief did it first.
