Прыжок Феликса Баумгартнера в мировую историю 14 октября 2012 г.


«Иногда надо подняться так высоко, чтобы осознать, насколько на самом деле ты мал».

«Sometimes you have to go up really high to understand how small you really are».



Что это значит



Прыжок с высоты 128 тыс. футов (39 км)


Мировые рекорды прыжка Ф.Баумгартнера:

- высота подъема человека на гелиевом стратостате – 39045 м;

- высота прыжка человека из стратосферы – 39045 м;

- скорость движения (свободного падения) человека за пределами самолета (автомобиля) – 373 метра в секунду, 1342 км в час, 1,24 Маха (в 1,24 раза быстрее скорости звука);

- расстояние, преодоленное во время свободного падения, – 119846 футов (36529 м).

Describing his thoughts before falling from the capsule, Baumgartner said:

«When I was standing there on top of the world so humble, you are not thinking about breaking records. I was thinking about coming back alive. You do not want to die in front of your parents and all these people....I thought 'please God, don't let me down».

Риски для жизни (согласно Reuters):

1. Colliding shock waves, triggered by a human body moving faster than the speed of sound, could hit with the force of an explosion, though the risk of this is much less likely in the stratosphere, where the air is extremely thin.

2. The low-pressure environment could cause Baumgartner to go into a flat spin. If a spin lasts for too long, he could lose consciousness and injure his eyes, brain and cardiovascular system.

3. Exposure to vacuum, even for a short period of time, could cause Baumgartner's blood to literally boil. The condition, known as ebullism, causes fluids in the body to turn to gas.

4. Gas seeping into the body due to a relatively rapid exposure to low pressure can cause decompression sickness, or "the bends."

5. As pressure decreases, trapped gas in the body can cause ear blockages, dizziness and acute tooth, sinus and gastrointestinal pain. When decompression is sudden, lungs can over-inflate and collapse. A gas bubble in an artery could stop blood flow.

6. Extremely cold temperatures pose a threat to Baumgartner and his equipment. Excessive heat from the sun is also a risk.

7. Ultraviolet radiation is more than 100,000 times as strong at 120,000 feet, where Baumgartner plans to begin his jump, as it is at ground level, but Baumgartner should have a very short exposure time.

8. Wind shear could make Baumgartner nauseous and could destroy his balloon.

9. A breach in Baumgartner's protective spacesuit or the accidental deployment of a parachute are considered the biggest safety concerns.

Начало подъема стратостата над Нью-Мексико – 9:32 MDT (19:32 моск. времени).

Прыжок – 12:08 MDT (22:08 моск. времени).
Свободный полет длился 4 мин. 20 сек.

Приземление – 12:17 MDT (22:17 моск. времени).

Видео прыжка появилось на ю-тьюбе через 5 часов после приземления Ф.Баумгартнера.
