Well how does 23 miles or 39.034 meters above the earth sound? Felix Baumgartner a 43 year old Austrian skydiver, jumped 23 miles above the earth on October 14 2012 and set a world record. He Jumped to earth from a helium balloon in the stratosphere. The Stratosphere is the second major layer of Earth's atmosphere, it is arranged in temperature, with warmer layers higher up and cooler layers farther down.
Felix: What did I get myself into?
Too late to turn back now.
I'm Alive I'm Alive!!!!
