SPACE JUMP revives the most watched video on Youtube and discover the story behind the jump with the new documentary.
It is 10 years since Felix Baumgartner became the first human being to break the sound barrier in free fall, jumping from a height of 38,969 meters, reaching a maximum speed of 1,357.6 kilometers per hour (Mach 1.25).
On October 14, 2012, in a mission called Red Bull Stratos, millions of people around the world tuned in to see Baumgartner ascend to the edge of a small capsule in space, jump and fall to Earth faster than the speed of sound, with a top speed of 373 meters per second.
the new documentary “SPACE JUMP: How Red Bull Stratos caught the world’s attention” offers never-before-seen statements and exclusive images, commemorating the legacy of this amazing space mission.
For the first time, fans and industry experts provide their insights, as well as those who made it happen; from the technical director of the project to one of the largest Internet giants in the world, whose servers were on the verge of breaking by maintaining so many viewers.
For his part, Baumgartner, the world record holder himself, also offers his vision like never before.
The results of the mission have continued to shape our world a decade later, including remarkable insights into aerospace programming and space technology.
Furthermore, it was a revolutionary impact in the world of broadcast settings, updates in terms of broadcasting and of course, an incredible human inspiration that will continue to resonate for years to come.
With more than 5 years of development, the team changed the way they deal with life support in space, as space suits now offer better mobility and new protocols are in place to protect the lives of airmen exposed to high height.
The technical director of the project, Art Thompson, explained: “The effect it had globally on education and the next generation of aerospace or flight test engineers was huge. In addition, we use the life support system technology and data we designed into the capsule to change the life support configuration of high-altitude jets, including the U-2.”
The most viewed video on Youtube
Globally, people were drawn to the effort as it was broadcast live on 77 television channels around the world, in addition to millions of online streamers. The broadcast almost broke the servers of the YouTube platform, reaching 16 times that of the Summer Olympics, and remains the most watched live broadcast in the history of the platform.
“In the first two weeks there were more than 100 million views of the event. Ten years later it has almost a billion views. It’s amazing to see the interest that Red Bull Stratos sustains over time,” said Tim Katz, YouTube Director, Head of Sports and News Associations.
Red Bull Stratos proved that a human could break the speed of sound in free fall, with Felix Baumgartner setting numerous milestones, including three official world records: maximum vertical speed (1,357.6 km/h, 843.6 mph/Mach 1.25) , highest exit altitude (jump) (38,969.4 m, 127,852.4 ft), and vertical free fall distance (36,402.6 m, 119,431.1 ft).
“SPACE JUMP: How Red Bull Stratos Captured the World’s Attention” will be available at Red BullTV on October 14 at 10am CET commemorating the 10th anniversary of Red Bull Stratos.
