Astronomy Science ~ In the awful plunge from the stratosphere, a Google executive broke the world record for the highest altitude skydive on 24 October.

Google boss, Alan Eustace beat the record plunge of the stratosphere, which once accounted for Felix Baumgartner. Action that he did quietly on October 24, 2014. Eustace reach supersonic speed during a fall from a height of more than 40 kilometers above New Mexico, beat the altitude record 'challenger death' of Austria, Felix Baumgartner who recorded two years ago, October 14, 2012 , the global action, Red Bull Stratos - from a height of 39 068 meters.

Eustace is governed by the epic achievement of stratospheric Explorer team (Stratex) of Paragon Space Development Corporation. Wearing outer space that have been adapted, Eustace lifted into the air to the stratosphere using helium balloons. After taking off for 2 hours and 9 minutes, at the edge of the sky, he threw himself from a height of 135 890 feet or 41 419 meters, at a speed of 1,322 km / h.

With a height of more than 135,000 feet (41 148 meters), Alan Eustace can see the curvature of the earth against the darkness of space.
This combination of speed and altitude that makes Eustace falls beyond the speed of sound - the maximum reaching Mach 1.23. Triggering a sonic boom that can be heard by the team at the bottom. Such information Grant Anderson, CEO of Paragon.

Eustace previous 57 years experience as a skydiver and pilot. Nevertheless, he had to undergo special training, is also a test that is not easy before plunging. He also had to learn how to move in sophisticated clothing pressurized weighing up to 181 kg. "It's not the clothes that you can use to bring the dog for a walk," said Anderson.

The team decided not to use capsules - as used Baumgartner. Therefore, it would add to the problem: the more weight is lifted balloons, and required two life support system, in clothing and capsules.

"Designing clothes that could keep him alive and relatively comfortable in that period looks like a simpler way. That's what we choose," said Anderson.

Eustace freefall for about 4.5 minutes before developing parachutes and touch the ground. He became the second person to beat the speed of sound outside the aircraft. Baumgartner fixed first.

After about 14 minutes floating back to the surface of the Earth with a parachute, Eustace fell to the ground safely at a point about 113 km from the launch site Roswell, New Mexico. Success!

It took 34 months to prepare for the big adventure. Especially for the Paragon and Stratex team, which developed the balloon, special clothing, and other support systems. One of the founders of Paragon, Jane Poynter is CEO of World View - companies that wish to provide services for customers who want to taste the thrill of riding a balloon to the sky high by using a capsule. Have to pay of course.
