Fyrsta kvöldmáltíðin af mörgum.

Fyrsta kvöldmáltíðin af mörgum með þessum frábæra hópi. Hlökkum mikið til að þegar hann tvöfaldast eftir viku.
Allir fóru í loftið og allir sælir. Stefnir í ennþá meiri snilldarferð en 2012 enda tvöfalt fleiri í þessari en í fyrra.

Heimsmet Felix Baumgartner staðfest.

Felix-Baumgartner-x-Red-Bull-Stratos-10-1024x576Heimsmet Felix Baumgartner hafa núna verið staðfest af FAI. Hann er núna handhafi heimsmeta í mesta hraða í frjálsu falli sem er 1357,6 Km., mestu hæð sem stokkið hefur verið úr sem er 38.969,4 metrar (127.851 fet) og lengsta frjálsa fallið en það var 36.402,6 metrar (119.429,13 fet).

Ég á von á því að þessi heimsmet munu standa um hríð þó svo að margir vilji slá þau. Gaman að hafa eitthvað til að stefna að í framhaldinu.

Dear FAI News Readers,

The FAI has today ratified the 3 world records claimed by Austrian parachutist Felix Baumgartner in Maximum Vertical Speed, Exit Altitude and Vertical Distance of Freefall.

On 14 October 2012, Felix, supported by a team of experts from the Red Bull Stratos Mission, took off from Roswell, USA, aboard a pressurised capsule attached to a helium balloon. Wearing a specially designed suit, Felix was carried high into the sky up to the altitude of 38969.4 m, where he exited from the capsule and launched himself down towards Earth. While freefalling, Felix achieved a distance of 36402.6 m and reached the speed of 1357.6 km/h before opening his parachute and land safely on the ground.

By breaking these world records, Felix adds his names to the list of FAI world record holders which includes prestigious air sport personalities such as Charles Lindbergh, Yuri Gagarin and, more recently, Bertrand Piccard and Steve Fossett.

The FAI congratulates Felix on his great achievement.
