Some people are thrill-seekers. They live to go off-piste skiing, ride rollercoasters and throw themselves off a cliff or two, bungee-jumping. Meet Felix. He is on a completely different level. He is the ultimate thrill-seeker, and I don't think anyone can argue with that.
Sponsored by Red Bull, Austrian Felix Baumgartner is attempting to break records by skydiving from the edge of the stratosphere. In other words, from the edge of space. From where he wants to jump, at 120,000 feet, you can see the curvature of the Earth.
Felix intends to ascend in a stratospheric balloon, a journey that will take three hours, and jump, in a special pressurized suit, to Earth. He will freefall for approximately five minutes, during which he aims to break the sound barrier.
'Fearless Felix' has not had much luck, though. He was supposed to make the jump on Monday, and due to high winds, had to delay. The jump was postponed for a second time on Tuesday because of wind gusts. Felix now hopes to make the jump on Sunday. You can watch the jump live on the Red Bull website.
The CGI clip shows a representation of the 'Mission To The Edge Of Space' and has generated over 105,000 shares, 67,000 of which have been this week.
The must-see video really makes you realise the enormity of Felix's challenge. He has two major risks. Firstly, that his suit will be penetrated, or secondly, that he will spin out of control and be unable to deploy his parachute.
Best of luck Felix. You madman.
