ZENITH & FELIX BAUMGARTNER - THE MISSION
PRESENTWATCH congratulates FELIX BAUMGARTNER:
On having beaten three world records by jumping from the stratosphere.
After flying to an altitude of 39,045 meters (128,100 feet) in a helium-filled balloon, Felix Baumgartner completed a record breaking jump from the edge of space.
Felix reached a maximum of speed of 1,342.8 km/h (833mph) through the near vacuum of the stratosphere before being slowed by the atmosphere later during his 4:20 minute long freefall.
The project attempted to transcend human limits that have existed for over 50 years and smash three world records:
1 - The highest manned balloon flight
2 - The highest freefall
3 - The first time in history, breaking the sound barrier with the human body
Zenith Manufacture is one of the main sponsors and sole timekeeper of this extremely dangerous mission.
