What makes a record-breaking, free-fall jump possible?

January 23–April 26, 2016

Red Bull Stratos centres on the science and technology that made Felix Baumgartner’s 39,000-metre, record-breaking free-fall jump possible. Featuring the actual capsule and space suit Felix used, this exhibit dives into many topics including: engineering, innovation, space science, the science of motion, human physiology and the study of the human body in space under extreme conditions. The data collected from the Stratos project furthered the development of space agency protocols for exposure to high altitude and supersonic acceleration and deceleration.
