An Austrian skydiver jumped from a balloon flying at an altitude more than 18 miles (29 kilometers) above Earth on Wednesday (July 25), falling at speeds topping 500 miles per hour (805 kilometers per hour) in a training run for his attempt to make the world’s highest skydive. Felix Baumgartner landed safely in a desert near Roswell, New Mexico after leaping from an estimated 96940 feet (29547 metres) wearing a pressurized space suit equipped with an oxygen supply. The test parachute jump was the second for Baumgartner, who is on a quest to complete a record-breaking skydive from 120000 feet (36576 metres) in the coming weeks. He also hopes to become the first man to break the speed of sound at 700 mph (1126 kph) in a free fall.
