13-Mile Practice Skydive for Record-Breaking Space Jump

Copyright Red Bull Stratos

Austrian adventurer Felix Baumgartner is hoping to make the world’s highest skydive this summer, in an event backed by energy drink company Red Bull. As a practice run, he leaped from a custom built capsule at an altitude of 71,581 feet (21,818 meters), marking his personal highest-jump ever.

Baumgartner’s ultimate goal is to jump from 120,000 feet (36,576 m) later this year in what he hopes will also be the first supersonic skydive.
