That was so awesome!!!!!    Admit it, when he was falling at over 700mph and spinning really fast...your heart was pounding...wasn't it.  I know mine was.    That guy is insanely brave.    He did a lot to show that we could probably jump from even higher altitudes and this type of test could prove useful to astronauts. who might have to bail from aborted launches.   It shows that they can jump from those heights.   :)

OMG - so wicked!

That's a good topic, but the real question should be; Who Cares?

I'd rather sit in living room for the whole day and stare out of the window, hoping to catch a glimpse of my neighbour's cat walking through my yard. Much more exiting, beautiful and culturally important.

wow, that's really snobish.

"personally" any time a human stretches him/herself beyond what they are capable of, whether it's creating art, making machines, running a marathon or flying in a wing suit:

we show what an amazing species we are.

It's all culturally important.

There was a part where Im sure I thought I heard him say he "passed out" or "almost passed out", and the controller saying "speak to me", "say something".

Because my feed was showing him spinning out of control at like 1:28 in the freefall and then it jumped to like the 5 minute mark and he was under contol. So I have this feeling that was blocked in the live feed.

 

If I remember; that spinning out of control was the most dangerous part of this attempt.

At high-alt with almost no air pressure you cant really control yourself. And if you start spinning, which he did, the g-forces can spin the blood out to your extremtites and cause a person to blackout. And I think thats what nearly happened or did happen.

I think breaking the sound barrier was probably the most dangerous part of the fall. The concussive force can rip you apart.

Maybe at sea level, but he was well above that when he hit 729mph.    So I think the effects would be much different in thinner atmosphere - at least I would assume.   Can someone verify this?

"It will take him just 40 seconds to go from zero to 700mph and break the sound barrier at an altitude of around 100,000ft.

No one can be sure what happens when a body breaks the sound barrier at that height, and the possibility of his suit being damaged by supersonic shock waves is another unpleasant 'what if' that Baumgartner’s scientific experts have had to consider."

That is correct.

The only reason he reached that speed was because the the lack of air or air pressure.

Terminal velocity for a falling body is only about 120 mph (unless youre going head or feet first) and thats due to the density of the air at lower levels.

 

So when he broke the sound barrier all he heard was,

.

nothing. Because there wasnt enough air to make a sonic boom.

Which is why him spinning was so dangerous. Until he was able to get into the lower more dense atmosphere he couldnt recover from his spin. And if he did blackout completely he may not have come to in time to pull his ripcord.

Yea,

If you watch it again.. he speeds up to around 730 mph... normally you see PLANES break the sound barrier, they have that cool ring of air around them.  Because he was so high up he didn't hit it.  You'll notice that right after that, his speed drops to the high 600's.  That's him hitting the beginning of the atmosphere.  It is ALSO what sent him into a spin.  Higher up, even if he held his arms out and flailed, there was nothing there to resist him (therefore no movement but straight down).  If he HADN'T have corrected for the spin, he would have had blood hit his brain and knock him out.  They DID plan for that (just in case his suit ripped) so he had an auto fire on his parachute and he ALSO had a parachute on his boots designed to stop the rotation if it got too bad (they THINK).

He free fell for 4 minutes and 21 seconds.
