The Red Bull Stratos science team has spent five years developing the capsule that will deliver Felix Baumgartner to the edge of space for his record-breaking freefall attempt from 36,000 meters.  The craft will protect Baumgartner from stratospheric temperatures and offer a stable oxygenated and pressurized environment during the ascent so he has air to breathe and can avoid decompression sickness. The vessel will also act as a stable base for his step-off into freefall.

The step by step run through of how the capsule was developed and built by the Red Bull Stratos team is accompanied by explanatory interviews from Felix Baumgartner, Joe Kittinger, the current record holder, and Art Thompson, the mission’s technical director.
