Red Bull’s capsule to take Felix Baumgartner to a record-breaking 120,000 feet off ground

by Gavril Mankoo

Adventure sports star Felix Baumgartner will soon break the record for the highest a skydiver has ever reached. Taking him to the heavens above will be a swank contraption put together by the Red Bull. A capsule measuring 8 feet in diameter, this contraption will take Baumgartner into the stratosphere safely and is capable of withstanding temperatures of up to -70 degrees Farenheit. Going 120,000 feet above ground for a skydive in this development by Red Bull, Felix Baumgartner will break the record held at 102,800 feet by Joe Kittinger back in 1960.
