Supersonic Freefall - Red Bull Stratos CGI

Sometime this summer, Felix Baumgartner will attempt a record-breaking freefall jump from 120,000 feet. Here’s an animated video of what’s scheduled to happen whenever Stratos does launch.
"In the summer of 2012, Felix Baumgartner will attempt a record-breaking freefall jump from 120,000 feet - 23 miles - above the earth as part of Red Bull Stratos: a mission to the edge of space. The attempt will take place near Roswell, NM, USA, and if successful, Felix Baumgartner could be the first person to break the speed of sound with his own body, protected only by a space suit. As no one has successfully jumped from this height before, it's uncertain what the highest supersonic freefall in history will look or feel like. This animated video gives us a sense of what to expect when the history-making jump takes place later this summer when the weather is best for a launch. "
