Extreme skydiver, Felix Baumgartner, begins a freefall of 29,455 metres in a test jump for the Red Bull Stratos Project thatlasted 3 minutes and 48 seconds at speeds reaching 862 kilometers per hour, with a 10 minute and 36 second descent into the desert of New Mexico. The jump --to test the latest pressure suits and safety measures that could be used in future space travel--makes him the second person ever to have completed a jump from this altitude.
On Baumgartner's final jump, scheduled for later this year, he will plummet from 120,000 feet (36,576 meters) breaking the sound barrier - the highest ever space dive.
