Unforgettable Image of Felix Baumgartn standing on the edge of the space!
Taking Felix Baumgartner up to 127,000 feet height above the Earth is a special balloon called the Red Bull Stratos, which has been specially created to hold a colossal 30 million cubic foot (843,497 cubic meters) of helium gas.
As you can see in the image below the balloon is absolutely gigantic in size and is the biggest balloon ever made measuring 102.05 m tall approximately 335 feet. Equivalent to a 55 story building, or higher than the Statue of Liberty to put it in perspective.
