New figures for Felix Baumgartner’s record-setting “spacedive” have been released by Red Bull.
- October 2012 Skydiver Felix Baumgartner took part in the now world-famous Red Bull Stratos “spacejump” which saw the 42-year-old daredevil set world records for the highest manned balloon flight and highest freefall.
- February 2013 The Red Bull Stratos project released new figures which reveal that Baumgartner didn’t fall quite as far as previously believed (127,852.4 ft. instead of 128,100 ft.); however, Baumgartner apparently fell notably faster than previously reported. While it was originally believed that Felix reached a top speed of 833.9 mph, the Austrian actually reached a maximum speed of 843.6 mph. source
