He Is Crazy ~ Jump from the Heavens ~

Have you ever wondered what is it like to free fall from the edge of space? I know I will never find out. But Felix Baumgartner will be the first man ever to break the speed of sound - he'll attempt to free fall from 120,000 miles above! Can you believe it? It's like jumping from the edge of space. He's crazy!!! This is all for Red Bull Stratos. They will bring him all the way up to the edge of sky with a special balloon and he'll just jump off from it.

If he's sucessful of this challenge, it will open a new door to the space program, how to save astronauts from any type of explosions/accidents.

And Felix will do it for his own good as well as for the others.

I've lived my life always wanting to do something extreme because I don't want to have regrets.
But I know there is no way I can possiblly do things that he's done in his life.
He's truly an amazing individual - a risk taker, but in a fabulous way.

I just hope that he'll land on Earth safely and accomplish something no one has achieved.

That's him on top of Statue of Christ The Redeemer.

For all the real time information, go to Red Bull Stratos. And make sure to watch this video clip. It will take your breath away....

Have a fabulous Monday, darlings!!!

So awesome. I saw a blurb about this guy in the NYT a few months ago, but it didn't have a lot of details. I'm pretty excited to see if he can do it.
