Skydiver Prepares For Highest Jump Ever
He will jump from 36 kilometres and possibly become the first human to fall at the speed of sound.
From BBC News:
His Red Bull Stratos team estimates he reached 364mph (586km/h) during the descent, and was in free fall for three minutes and 43 seconds before opening his parachute. From capsule to ground, the entire jump lasted eight minutes and eight seconds.
