Felix Baumgartner
  • jump from the stratosphere from 38,969.4 metres as part of the Red Bull Stratos project
  • as part of the Baumgartner project, he broke four world records – the highest manned balloon flight, the highest parachute jump and the longest distance covered and the highest free fall speed
  • during the fall Baumgartner developed a maximum speed of 1357.6 km/h, which means that he became the first person to break the speed of sound during free fall. During the jump another record was also broken – Baumgartner's jump was watched live on YouTube by over 8 million Internet users

Alan Eustace
  • jump from the stratosphere from a height of 41,419 meters as part of the Paragon StratEx project, which aims to deepen knowledge of the stratosphere and use it to develop new technologies for flights above 30 km
  • unlike Baumgartner, Eustace did not use the capsule for the flight, but relied solely on his suit and was attached directly to the harness and the balloon
  • during free fall Eustace moved at the speed of sound for 90 seconds and the technology used was definitely more secure – it contained a stabilizer that slowed Eustace and protected him from the rotation Baumgartner fell into and allowed him to breathe oxygen during the climb and the jump

Jump for planet

2021 22

Safe landing is not the culmination of the Jump For The Planet project.
This is the moment when we use the attention of the whole world to emphasize the importance of the climate refugees problem and raise funds for the purpose of our action. We believe that the jump can become an impulse for global social change and bring a message of solidarity and help to the poorest and most affected.
