World's Highest Skydive! Daredevil Felix Baumgartner Makes Record-Breaking Supersonic 'Space Jump' | Space.com

Joseph William Kittinger II is a retired Colonel in the US Air Force and a USAF Command Pilot. Following his initial operational assignment in fighter aircraft, he participated in Project Manhigh and Project Excelsior in 1960, setting a world record for the highest skydive from a height greater than 31 kilometres (19 mi).[1] He was also the first man to make a solo crossing of the Atlantic Ocean in a gas balloon.

Go tandem skydiving in New Zealand and jump from as high as 16,500 feet (5,029 meters) — the highest elevation available on the North Island! You’ll freefall for 75 seconds before your tandem instructor pulls the ripcord. Alternatively, opt for a skydive package from 13,000 feet (3,962 meters) or go from 9,000 feet (2,743 meters). Once you’ve caught your breath, soak up the stunning coastal views of rainforests and beaches from above.

Austrian Skydiver Lands Safely After Freefalling Faster Than Speed of Sound

A custom spacesuit has been designed to protect Felix Baumgartner for his attempt at the world's highest skydive. The suit will protect him from -70 degree temperatures and low pressure at the extreme altitude and maintain the oxygen and pressure levels he'll need to survive at supersonic speeds.
