Seven years after the record jump of Felix Baumgartner from the stratosphere, Planetarium No. 1 in St. Petersburg will present a unique exhibition dedicated to the Red Bull Stratos project.
The exposition includes an original capsule and an original spacesuit, in which on October 14, 2012, the Austrian parachuting expert Felix Baumgartner made history, breaking a record that lasted more than 50 years. Rising in a helium-filled balloon to the boundary of the earth’s atmosphere, Felix jumped from a height of 38,969.4 meters and became the first person to overcome the sound barrier in free fall. The maximum speed recorded during the jump was 1357.6 km / h, or Mach 1.25. Also, the Red Bull Stratos project set a number of other records in the field of aeronautics and allowed to collect valuable information for further space research.
In addition to the capsule and the spacesuit, the exhibition will feature four double-sided multimedia panels telling about the history of the jump.
Over the past seven years, the Red Bull Stratos exposition has traveled to different parts of the world: in Germany, England, Austria, Japan and Canada, and its permanent “home” is the Swiss Museum of Transport in Lucerne.
From October 14, 2019 to January 14, 2020, residents and guests of St. Petersburg will be able to see the unique interactive exhibition at Planetarium No. 1 at 74C Obvodnoy Canal Embankment. Entrance to the exhibition by tickets to the Planetarium.
