Red Bull Stratos is a mission to overcome human limits and ascend to 120,000 feet in a stratospheric balloon and make a free fall jump rushing towards earth at supersonic speeds before parachuting to the ground. The team of experts who built this unique technology includes retired United States Air Force Colonel Joseph Kittinger, who holds three of the records that Felix will try to break. Joe’s record jump was from 102,800 ft. in 1960.
