This time the Australian daredevil jumped from 18 miles high, or just about 96,000 feet above the earth.
This was Baumgartner’s second test jump. His goal is to next month jump from 120,000 feet.
That would break Joseph Kittinger’s world record for highest skydive of 102,800 feet, set back in 1960 as part of a U.S. Air Force research project.
In March, Baumgartner successfully jumped from just over 71,000 feet above the Earth’s surface.
