Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  2. Felix Baumgartner is Austrian, so last Sunday everybody was talking about him on German and Austrian TV channels. I watched an interview and I was completely amazed from his attitude and his achievements. He has already jumped from almost every important skyscraper, sometimes without being allowed, to feel that he is flying only for a few seconds. But what impressed me more was the fact that he doesn’t like calling himself an “adrenalin junkie”, because every single jump he makes is perfectly planned and he knows the risks he is facing. What he did on Sunday is unbelievable. I couldn’t imagine myself sitting in the capsule and suddenly open the door and jump from 39000 meters high, as nothing could happen, and in fact he needed 5 years of training to achieve that. I think Felix Baumgartner won’t forget this experience.

  5. Felix Baumgartner is an Austrian skydiver who claimed the world record for the highest parachute jump from a building, when he jumped from the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He was also the first person to skydive across the English Channel using a specially made carbon fiber wing. Besides, he set the world record for the lowest BASE jump ever when he jumped 29 m from the hand of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro.
    However, Felix Baumgatner will be known in the future because of his jump from the stratosphere, just 39,000 meters high. He broke three records in his jump. One of them was that he reached the fastest speed of free fall at 1,342 kilometres per hour, making him the first human to break the sound barrier. This jump took him five years of effort and sacrifice, but you also have to be brave to do it.
    Three days ago he said he was going to leave the extreme sports because he felt old to do that. He wants to be a rescue helicopter pilot.

  7. How brave Felix is! What is his fear? I think he isn't afraid of anything because these days we have the evidence. How could he do that? I still can't believe it, because it seems an impossible thing to do, is very difficult.
    Felix wanted his jump from 39,000 meters, which was a historical stunt, and he did it. Sure that in a few years' time someone else will probably appear trying to beat this world record.

    Finally, I found an interesting article of Felix when he was a child where we can see his intentions. When he was 5, he drew a picture for his mum where he described what he liked, skydive.

  9. Last Sunday, all young people and adults of this country(and from all the world) were able to watch a historical event which I think will never be forgotten: Felix Baumgartner's jump. The Austrian dared to break the historical record by jumping from more than 39,000 meters, exceeding the speed of the light. This jump cost him five years of training and I think there are few people in the world able to have that courage to jump without thinking and take the risk of dying in the attempt. There was a moment in Felix's jump, when he lost control practised, but fortunately everything ended well.
    The truth is that although I have never practiced any extreme sport, I like them a lot and someday I would like to try skydiving, but not from 39,000 metres high!

  10. Last Sunday at 8 pm,in the tv,we can wacht something incredible. Felix Baungartner,who is a australian skydiver,jumped from the stratosphere 39 km in free fall.This way,the australian landed on the ground after getting a supersonic record.

    Recently,I have read on the internet that Felix in a special in what is known as BASE jumpingm, those are jumps from statics points such as,buildings and bridges.

    He has been training for five years to get this record.

    Personally,I think you have to be very brave and also be a little crazy to do this.

  11. Last Saturday I was wathing TV with my family when it happened. An Austrian skydiver men called Felix Baumgatner jumped from 39 kilometers high breaking the sound barrier at 1,342 kilometers per hour and making a world record: the first man that breaks the sound barrier.

    And the most incredible thing is that five minutes later he was ok and standing up talking with other people. I think he is a such lucky man for having done this.

    age 43. Félix has gotten impossible challenges that aren´t to catch of many people.
    14 october increased fer extraordinary list of achievement with a historical jump over stratosphere to more than 39,000 meters, much person of the world saw it.

  13. I remember perfectly the day that Felix Baumgartner jumped from stratosphere. I was studying in my bedroom and my brother called me quickly. I watched the TV and I saw that Felix was ascending to 39.000 meters hight and then jump in free fall. This men is incredible! Felix with this jump got different records: he was the first human to break the sound barrier, he jumped in free fall from the highest point…
    Felix is a very brave man, because besides to jump from the stratosphere, he has jumped from highest skyscrapers in the world. For example, he jumped from the Petronas Tower in Malaysia. Now Felix Baumgartner has left this sport so dangerous and he is helicopter pilot.

  14. When I saw that incredible situation in the TV I was fascinated. Only watching the TV, seeing the height that there were, I thought that if I had been Felix, I was absolutely sure that I would had been afraid, he could see all the world, it's more an utopia than a reality. In that moment I thought: ''Now he has to jump, he has to psych up himself,'', and before I had finished speaking , he was jumping. I was amazed, he was going so quickly that the cameras couldn't record him. When he started to have problems in the sky, to spin uncontrollably, I said my father that he was going to die, although I knew that he had got three parachutes. I didn't like that having a lot of cameras in his body, we had to see the free fall with a camera a lot of distance far from him. It looks too easy when, really, he had been training for a lot of years, I think that he deserves more respect that he got, because people think that it's easy, he had a lot of parachutes and clothes in his body, although I think people would have started to cry if they had been at his situation.

  15. Felix Baumgartner was born on 20 April 1969, in Salzburg, Austria. when he was a kid, he dreamed to be an skydiver. He won the world record for the highest parachute jump from a building when he jumped from the Petronas Towers in Malaysia. On 2003 Baumgartner was the first person to cross the English Channel using a suit made of carbon fiber.

    I can remember this day as if it were yesterday, it was just incredible, there´re no words to describe this jump, if I am not mistaken, I remember that it tooks nearly three hours to ascend 39000 m, when he was at 39000m more or less I thougth that something was wrong because he tooks a few minutes to get out the balloon, but no, he was perfect, a few moments later he jumped, in only one minute he broke the sound barrier, after this, he looses the control, but for just a moment, he quickly stabilized his body and he continued falling, at 4:19 minutes he opened his parachute.
