The Stratos Redbull jump was amazing. The fact that we’ve come so far as a race that we can put somebody up in “space”, 24 miles high and then execute a freefall, history-making jump with such precision is outstanding. However, If you recall this is not the first attempt at setting the world record. This is not the first attempt at this jump. Last week there were supposed to do this, but unfavorable conditions prevented them from completing their mission.
