Man Plans To Freefall From 120,000ft

Thursday, February 21, 2008

A daredevil ex-SAS soldier is to attempt a record-breaking skydive — from 120,000ft. This would smash the previous record of 102,000ft set back in 1960 by US Air Force officer Joseph Kittinger. He will freefall for seven minutes before opening his parachute, and could break the 770mph sound barrier as he hurtles towards the ground. No human has ever travelled at such a speed outside an aircraft — and Steve has no idea how his body will react.
