BASE jumping isn’t even allowed in most countries. As you might have seen in my article of a few days ago, the reason why this extreme sport is banned in so many countries is because it is so dangerous. There have been many fatalities considering how few people participate in the sport.
However, in the world of BASE jumping, Felix Baumgartner is certainly the best at it. If it’s worth trying he will have tried it… if it’s never been done before he, undoubtably, will be the first to do it.

On 12th December, 2007 he became the first person who jumped from the 91st floor observation deck, then went to the 90th floor (about 390 m (1,280 ft)) of the tallest completed building in the world Taipei 101, Taipei, Thaiwan.
