The space jump (True story)!

Felix Baumgartner Space Jump

A space jump by Christine Djerf

There are several challenges to space jumping. The space diver suit have to protect against hostile temperatures, pressures, and lack of oxygen. In this height, low pressure would cause decompression sickness.

Depending on the weight of the diver, the entry suit, to the atmosphere would have to be armored against the heat. The speed of orbit is approximated to thousands of kilometers per hour. To go from this speed into the atmosphere produces a compression wave that heats the air, and cause temperatures up to 200 °C (392 °F).

G forces from 2-8, would possibly contribe to black outs and pressure-related complications. 

 

Christine: This is what happened, source REDBULL. To watch the pictures tap into http://www.redbull.com/cs/Satellite/en_INT/Article/Red-Bull-Stratos-History-In-The-Making-Photostory-021243271482570 ;

 

"Red Bull Stratos jump have become, in a short space of time, among some of the world's most iconic images. Here are a few more that try to do his heroic achievement justice.

While we await confirmation that Felix broke those four records – first man to break the speed of sound in freefall, freefall from the highest altitude, longest vertical distance in freefall, and highest manned balloon flight – it's worth considering the jump's philosophical impact. What does it change? Are we entering an era of super-evolution? What's the future of daredevilry now that it makes jumping over a few double-decker buses a bit old hat? 

Anyway, the sight of Felix stood on the precipice of his capsule, overlooking Earth, is enough to still your heart every time. But it's not the whole story, as the following pictures show… 
 

After five years' worth of planning and scheming, Felix Baumgartner and the Red Bull Stratos team have been itching to complete their daring mission for months now and the delays forced upon them have only ramped up anticipation. With time on their hands, the "what ifs" will have been going round their minds on a spin cycle.
 

So it was relief all round when the balloon finally lifted off at 9.31am on Sunday morning under clear blue skies. In fact, the Red Bull Stratos crew watching from Mission Control broke into spontaenous applause, their nerves abating for a few moments.
 

The balloon that took Felix to the edge of space was three times the size of the biggest balloon to have ascended with a human onboard. And what became of this inflatable vessel? With Felix safely on ground, Mission Control released the capsule from the balloon and then deployed its very own parachute, but not before it had torn a hole in the balloon to help that descend too.

While they kept an eye on Felix's progress, the crew down at Mission Control were also recording and compiling useful data, more of which they'll discover in the coming months.

  

Felix Baumgartner steps out… at 39,045m (or 128,100ft). Felix told us later that, "When you are standing on top of the world, you don’t think of records anymore; all you think is that you want to come back alive."

 

“Joe Kittinger’s gondola in 1960 was like a Model T – practical and very durable,” said capsule engineer Jon Wells of the equipment and technology utiilised by Red Bull Stratos. “With very sophisticated, sensitive equipment and all the ‘luxuries’ of cutting-edge technology, our Red Bull Stratos capsule was more like a modern supercar. From every standpoint, including a technical one, it really did its job.”

 

Felix was in freefall for a massive 36,529m (119,846ft) before his parachute opened. He fell for four mintues and 22 seconds – more than enough time to boil an egg for breakfast.

 

Said Felix afterwards: "There was a period of time during the freefall where I thought I was in trouble. It felt like a flat spin -- like a spin over all three axes. This is what we fear the most. I fought to get control, and that’s why we have the speed of sound record today."

 


"I wanna glide down," sang Tom Petty in Freefallin' and at 5,300ft above ground Felix pulled his chute and did just that. He eventually landed – nine minutes and nine seconds after jumping – 70.5km away from where he launched Red Bull Stratos a few hours earlier.

 

Oh happy days! Felix takes a moment to reacquaint himself with planet earth, while the Red Bull Stratos crew, above, are delirious with joy, relief, astonishment, you name it.

 


While Felix celebrated with members of his team, a crew of personnel awaited the landing of his equipment, which is set to be analysed for months and then saved for posterity. The flight path predicted by meteorologist Don Day meant they were just 300 yards from the landing spot. The team claim they heard Felix's sonic boom as he broke the sound of speed.
 


Afterwards, Felix's relief was palpable. "It was an incredible up and down today, just like it's been with the whole project. First we got off with a beautiful launch and then we had a bit of drama with a power supply issue to my visor. The exit was perfect but then I started spinning slowly. I thought I'd just spin a few times and that would be that, but then I started to speed up. It was really brutal at times. I thought for a few seconds that I'd lose consciousness. I didn't feel a sonic boom because I was so busy trying to stabilize myself."
 

Felix's mentor – and the man whose records he was trying to break – Col Joe Kittinger couldn't have been more proud than if he'd made this latest jump himself. The world saw Joe leading Felix through his pre-jump checklist and passing on the baton of daredevilry.

"This [issue with visor heat power] was a challenge," said Joe. "We had a team and we worked together with Felix to come up with a solution. Felix was perfect. He took the options that were available and made the right decisions."

Felix was rather more emotional about the jump in the same conference: "I want to inspire the next generation. As I sit here next to Joe Kittinger in this press conference, I’m hoping that in 40 years there will be someone asking my advice because he wants to break my records.""

Can virus improve your body and the amount of years you live?

Can virus improve your body and the amount of years you live? | International | Scoop.it

My eleven year old son told me yesterday that if we had the possibility to change our cells and the DNA, the body would work as a enhancement factory. We would be stronger, live longer and become even more suitable to enviromental changes. He went on... virus can help us evolve because it mainly works as a key to our DNA and life support system. It can turn on our defense system and it can turn it off, it can mutate our cells. If we could change the negative string in the DNA or RNA, the virus would work opposite, it would in fact make us superbeings when exposed.

 

What do you think? Is my son right?

 

"We all start out our lives with some mutations. These mutations inherited from your parents are called germ-line mutations. However, you can also acquire mutations during your lifetime. Some mutations happen during cell division, when DNA gets duplicated. Still other mutations are caused when DNA gets damaged by environmental factors, including UV radiation, chemicals, and viruses."
