A new documentary on the death defying jump from the edge of space.
By Felix Baumgartner a team of 200 people worked to make sure that Felix survived that jump.
And some of the test turns.
-- was scary watch this.
First -- opens -- drove shoot.
But with the mixed progress he commits a dramatic mistake.
Felix found that and the man who broke the sound barrier with his own body an amazing job joins me now.
Thanks for his -- -- hair so what was the what was to be mistaken that and that part.
Well that was the last -- on on a test day and -- -- Releasing their main parachute accident just -- -- run handle ever so focused on the camera.
And philosophers should not we have another one.
You know let's let's show that there are you are perched on the edge of this caps off a -- -- was there anyone in the capsule was that capsule but -- remotely.
Well I was in the camps line and then it brought it up by healing -- yes it's just present all the way up here all alone out there.
The amount off.
And -- you know I was really touch when we spoke last time about just that what he -- the feeling was like and what went through your mind and just the thoughts of mortality that.
You experienced when you heard -- Well it's not easy you know because we have as you can see -- -- hitting a lot of it's out of control in the beginning but -- on a -- -- out of control hosts constantly working on the solution and I found one.
-- -- Now what do you think is sort of the -- biggest scientific take away from this jump because I know in this documentary which is -- I watched some of the clips this morning.
And you see all of the people who put so much effort.
Into making this happen to have a human being be able to break the sound there and they talked about what it meant for science and what it meant for the future.
Tell us about that.
What I think future crew escape so I feel a lot.
Often put all the data that we've gained from this you know that the systems that we have developed a lot -- systems.
That people could use in the future because space tourist who's going to be more and more popular we definitely -- all our information -- these people.
So if people go up as space tourists you think there's some of the technology that you used.
Would be used to keep them safe up there something what happened they would be able to put the put themselves through what you went to land safe -- Well date they need to -- safety equipment that we developed I didn't use because it was using the scouting skills but these people have not been properly trained.
They could use that that equipment now on it'll protect their lives for sure there's no doubt about that.
I love the part when you land on the ground.
And it -- literally just get down and -- about what was going to your mind at that moment.
I was so worried about my landing because normally it's just had ever you do not worry about the landing just -- you know but this time.
I knew the whole world is watching -- -- make it perfect and I did.
And you also said.
You know of course the initial the obvious question when he did it again and your answer is hell no health -- never never get a quiet.
It doesn't make sense you know my -- my primary goal was always too.
Break the speed of sound as a human and -- did so there's nothing to get anymore.
And he also said it -- you think just as Gates's before a lot about about life.
And how what how has that impacted you over the last year.
What's -- on this shift from constantly on the road have met a lot of cool people.
-- met James -- Couple months ago that he won attacks via a point -- we both want to -- at a because he was the Mariana trench at the scene yes all the way down in the ocean.
Was -- interest in character and then met -- a lot of people who had a lot of good conversations.
You know a lot of kids -- look at talking a lot of schools.
If I think we've spent the next generation you know that's you know a lot of customs and at Halloween.
Stratus -- dance -- so that's certainly big honor.
So any other challenges in your future.
Not so far finding the right the right -- if they're right there right girl.
-- -- even did you -- President Reagan and yeah there are a lot of it I think like every like weather is not -- aren't -- we have a few suggestions for -- -- here thank you remains Felix good to see development of congratulations again of the man and his -- idea of the good luck on that -- -- -- -- did you come back your.
You know I know why it's going to be -- I don't think.
