Documenting the Red Bull Stratos project for future generations is perhaps as important as the scientific data gathered from the mission. That’s why the BBC has been following the mission from the start. Right after the 120,000 foot jump, the BBC together with the National Geographic Channel will air an exclusive, all-access documentary film covering every important moment in the project.
This 90-minute film will include images produced by FlightLine Films, using sophisticated camera systems capable of three channels of live broadcast back to earth, high-definition and 4K recording, and most everything modified to operate under extreme atmospheric conditions. You can read about aerospace cinematographer, Jay Nemeth, and his out-of-this-world technology in this month’s issue of Red Bulletin. The jaw-dropping image you see here was taken by one of Jay’s cameras, and if you missed it last week, check out this angle showing Felix just before he leaves the capsule from 71,581 feet.
On the day of the 120,000 foot jump, you can see everything streaming live on our website:redbullstratos.com. We’ll give you plenty of heads up so you won’t miss a thing.
