What happened to the balloon after Baumgartner’s leap? Is Baumgartner a pilot? Does a human body make a sonic boom? We investigate the answers to these questions and more.
5. Has Baumgartner jumped from a balloon before? Yes, he’s jumped from the same capsule and type of balloon twice before, once from around 70,000 feet and once from 90,000 feet, so Felix is no stranger to altitude.
