Supersonic Freefall From The Edge Of Space
Felix Baumgartner could become the first person to break the speed of sound with his own body, protected only by a space suit.
In the summer of 2012, Felix Baumgartner will attempt a record-breaking freefall jump from 120,000 feet (23 miles) above the earth as part of Red Bull Stratos: a mission to the edge of space.
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.
This animated video gives us a sense of what to expect when the history-making jump takes place.
It has to overcome limits which have existed for over fifty years, ever since the heroic achievement of US Air Force test pilot,
Joe Kittinger, who still holds the world record for skydiving from 102,800 ft. in 1960.
