mental... would love to do that...
i wonder how long the free fall is?? 10min?
probably less, the speed of sound is pretty fast eh
maybe.. how does he know he was doing the speed of sound if there is no sound in space?
speed is relative.
The red bull thing?
everything is sponsored by red bull these days.
having your morning toast?? RED BULL!!!
He went 1170 km/h max sound barrier is 1225 km/h fucker didn't break no sound barrier , that first off all. Second of all he was in the stratosphere that isn't even near out of space yet.
Sound barrier is different at different altitudes. It varries on air temperature and air density. The higher you are the less dense... the lower the speed of sound. etc etc etc.
The speed of sound depends on the temperature and density I believe.
If my brain serves me rightly the speed of sound is 1130 ft per sec (not sure in MPH) at 72 degrees fahrenheit. With every 1 degree increase the speed increases by 1.1 ft per sec.
Elasticity of molecules is important as well I can't remember how that is affected. I think that just determines the distance a soundwave can travel.
True my comment was not sufficient, I should have said speed of sound at sea level he aimed on breaking that (~330m/s), what I do not understand is that every moron could have calculated what speed he would achieve so why did he even bother trying.
what you want in your cereal?
i want some red bull please
I was made to watch this today, load of bollox if you ask me.
My diarrhea moves faster than he did
The worst part was they chose to show him falling from a shitty camera, just some tumbling white speck, roll on the videos from his view
he hit over 840mph no?
theyre just basing it on ground zero 745mph sound barrier.... let him have his moment
I dont understand how some people can think that this ISN'T fucking awesome?! Seriously cool!!
Uh this man was way cooler :
Joe Kittinger jumped in 1960 without a faggy capsule and hightech bullshit from an altitude of 102,800 feet (31,300 m).
Yeh thats pretty fukin nuts!! pretty much sat on a canvas sheet in some shabby capsule.... untill he got high enough.... then jumped in little more than a flame/cold resistant boiler suit and 1960's parachute.... FUCCCCKKK THAT!! crazy fucker!
4mins odd it took to go 23 miles woooah
i cud do that in a vauxhall nova with a big enough exhaust
I COULD DO THAT IN A FKING NINTENDO. THIS THREAD IS SHIT.
