Red Bull Athlete Felix Baumgartner came to Kuwait before two days ago. Fleix conducted a press conference at Jumeirah Messilah Beach Hotel & Spa where members of the media and VIPs had the chance to listen to the details of his historic jump along with the preparations that preceded it. As well, Felix met his fans at the 360 Mall.
Felix Baumgartner broke the speed of sound reaching an estimated speed of *833.9 mph (1,342.8 km/h) jumping from the stratosphere, which when certified will make him the first man to break the speed of sound in free fall while delivering valuable data for future space exploration.
Felix climbed to 128,100 feet (39,045 meters) in a helium-filled balloon Sunday morning Oct. 14, 2012. This is exactly 65 years after Chuck Yeager first broke the sound barrier flying in an experimental rocket powered airplane. Felix broke two other world records (highest freefall, highest manned balloon flight), leaving the longest freefall record to project mentor Col. Joe Kittinger.
