Red Bull just released this video and photos from Wednesday's Stratos test jump in Roswell, NM. Felix Baumgartner successfully jumped from 71, 580 feet in the first test jump leading up to this summer's 120,000 foot record attempt. He has one more test flight/jump from 90,000 feet coming up. This video is a bit of a tease but has some great footage of the helium balloon, the capsule, and the workings of the operation. Getting really excited for this to go down...

This video is a bit of a tease but has some great footage of the helium balloon, the capsule, and the workings of the operation. Getting really excited for this to go down…

      if a crappy energy drink company can sponsor so many bad ass things, makes you wonder why some other big companies haven’t stepped up to the plate? Nike, instead of wasting all that money on Jordan you could have invented the street luge or the flutag!

    I dont drink red bull, but I like how they’ve gone beyond sponsoring individual athletes to being a creative force that just keep going for it with whatever crazy ideas they think of… still, not yet sure if they are good or evil… actually i think they might be evil as their crappy product continues to sell, probably because they spend every dime they make trying to brainwash us into thinking redbull is good.
