Felix Baumgartner to Break Sound Barrier in Skydive From Stratosphere

Felix Baumgartner has already set free-falling records in this atmosphere—highest B.A.S.E. jump from a building, lowest B.A.S.E. jump—so now he’s taking his parachutes into the stratosphere. Later this year, the 41-year-old Austrian will ride in a pressurized capsule attached to a helium balloon 120,000 feet above the Earth. And then he’ll jump out. Baumgartner is expected to reach speeds of up to 740 mph on his way down, breaking the speed of sound. —>>READ REST OF ARTICLE from Alyson Sheppard at National Geographic Adventure
