Felix Baumgartner's space jump looks like a scene from Doctor Who


Felix Baumgartner jump looks like scene from Doctor Who

Science fiction has become science fact! This immediately came to mind when I saw Felix Baumgartner freefall from the edge of space and had to share it.

In case you don't know, it's from the Doctor Who episode Dinosaurs on a Spaceship. Educate yourself.

Did you catch the space jump?

  2. Just watched that live. I was scared, when he started flipping end over end for so long, that he was going to die. Or get really, really nauseous. Wow. I don't know how someone stays in a free fall position for that long. Amazing jump.

  4. I didn't see it but I'm sure it will be all over the place over the next few days. I just have to think what poverty and hunger all the money spent on that could have been used for.

  5. First of all, that is a hysterical image. Second, that jump was amazing. Even more amazing was how little O2 he had with him for the jump! When he was in free fall, they had a timer counting down his supply. After a minute, he only had 6 minutes of air left. Scary! But it was amazing. Balls of Steel on that guy. For real.

  9. I don't think Red Bull would have concerned themselves with those kinds of things, sadly :(

  10. I was a little worried that his O2 would run out before he hit the atmosphere..
