Space Jump: Felix Baumgartner Goes For The Record!



They practiced how to avoid getting trapped in a dangerous "horizontal spin." His life also depended on the integrity of his pressure suit, since temperatures high up were expected to hit 70 degrees below zero Fahrenheit or lower, and the atmosphere was so thin that his blood would have vaporized if he wasn't sufficiently protected.

This page shows the headcam video when he starts to go into the horizontal spin.

Not recommended if you get motion sick.
