Faster than the speed of sound

15/10/2012

Why anyone would want to leap from a balloon more than 24 miles from earth is beyond me.

But I admire Felix Baumgartner  for doing it, breaking the sound barrier and the record for the highest ever parachute jump.

His website is here.

On the about page you’ll find his motto: Everyone has limits, not everyone accepts them.

Can you compare this feat to those of the early adventurers who sought to explore unknown corners of the earth or is it literally and figuratively out of this world?
