Joe Kittinger jumps from 102,800 feet

Posted on Updated on

Joe Kittinger jumps from 102,800 feet (31,300 m). He fell for 4 minutes and 36 seconds reaching a maximum speed of 614 mph before opening his parachute at 18,000 feet (5,500 m). Pressurization for his right glove malfunctioned during the ascent, and his right hand swelled to twice its normal size.
