Live: Felix Baumgartner to skydive from upper stratosphere

Felix Baumgartner is currently (1300 EDT 14 Oct 2012) ascending in a balloon to ~120,000 feet (23 miles, in the upper stratosphere), intending to make the highest ever skydive.

Article with more info is here: http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/sns- ... 0669.story

More importantly, live video stream is here: http://www.redbullstratos.com/live

As I post this he's already at 93,000 ft, so more than 3/4 of the way there.

He hit almost 1136km/h, plummeting towards the planet from the outer reaches of our atmosphere.

I sat around my house, ate cake and played video games.

Re: Live: Felix Baumgartner to skydive from upper stratosphe

Yeah, the balloon continued rising past the expected altitude, and Felix eventually had to let helium out to stop it from climbing more. He jumped from more than 127,000 feet up, about 24.5 miles, and hit Mach 1.24 on his way down.

And landed on his feet.

Re: Live: Felix Baumgartner to skydive from upper stratosphe

According to wikipedia, Mach units = Velocity / Speed of sound for the condition it is in.
If the speed of sound is significantly slower in denser places (i never knew this until my teacher told me) then Mach speed in the statosphere should be.... well not that fast. He looked a lot faster than 300 m/s (~speed of sound at sea level) though.

Re: Live: Felix Baumgartner to skydive from upper stratosphe

If the speed of sound is slower in denser places, then it should be much higher in the less-dense places of the stratosphere, shouldn't it?

Besides, isn't the speed of sound at sea level 300 some odd meters per second? At least through air?
Come check out my stuff if you want. Love to hear back from people.

Re: Live: Felix Baumgartner to skydive from upper stratosphe

LOL Nick. Just, LOL.
But yeah, he was going really fast. Although it wouldn't be hard to break the sound barrier that high up as far as I know.
