Felix Baumgartnerâ€™s Story: Who Is the Man Who Pierced the Sky?
C Frank0 stashed this in Great Stories
When Felix Baumgartner set out to make a living by stunt jumpingâ€”from cliffs, buildings, and bridgesâ€”the young Austrian had no idea where it would take him: to a pressurized capsule nearly 24 miles above New Mexico, last October 14, preparing to free-fall farther than any man in history, and at supersonic speed. Detailing Baumgartnerâ€™s quest, William Langewiesche explores what drove him to ever greater heights.
Great story. I'm just wondering if every image of him has Red Bull in it, even if it's crumpled. :)
