Supersonic Man!

Felix Baumgartner is an Austrian pilot who is set to do one of the most dangerous and scary things we could ever imagine.

He is going to try and do a parachute jump from the edge of Space! Felix will jump out of a balloon 23 miles above the ground. That’s about 70 Empire State Buildings high.

Before he pulls the cord on his parachute he will be travelling at 700 miles an hour, the same as a fighter jet!

This will mean he breaks the sound barrier and create a sonic boom.

He is so high above the ground that he has to wear a Space Suit to breathe. We’ll keep you posted on how Felix does!
