Felix Baumgartener is pretty much a crazy Austrian with a death wish and a butt load of money behind him. Now I know that breaking the sound barrier with your own body sounds cool… and free falling back to Earth from 120,000 ft or 23 miles, sounds even more bad ass… But, what is it all for? I mean there is a pretty good chance the guy could freaking die! Live on the web!? That is where my brain kicks in and just says “Dude don’t over think it, it’s freaking rad, just got with it.” So since I occasionally listen to what my brain has to say, I’m going to tune in on October 8th to http://redbullstratos.com/ and watch this crazy person make history live and hope that he survives this insane freefall back into Earth. -”As no one has successfully jumped from this height before, it’s uncertain what the highest supersonic freefall in history will look or feel like”- RedBull Stratos.
