Felix Baumgartner, Red Bull, international news media, security teams and locals were on site in Roswell, New Mexico for the skydiving attempt of a lifetime. Baumgartner was to skydive from an unbelievable height of 120,000 feet–shattering records and making history. Unfortunately, due to high winds, the attempt was postponed until a later date.
The Red Bull Stratos team started planning this event over two years ago and has been in Roswell, preparing the site for the last two and a half weeks. Thousands of hours of manpower have gone into organizing this historical jump. Every detail has been planned and every risk accounted-for. With the level of difficulty involved in this challenge, there is no other option. Everything must be perfect.
Baumgartner will be launched into the stratosphere one day in the near future, when the desert winds are calm and the sky is clear. His ten-minute journey will break records and provide previously unknown data regarding space exploration and emergency space shuttle evacuations. It will pave the way for a new era of mankind and space exploration.
