On October 14, 2012, after years of training as an astronaut, Felix Baumgartner (born in 1969) carried out, from a capsule sent by balloon to the stratosphere, the highest jump of all time (39 thousand meters), breaking the record set by Joseph Kittinger in 1960. His intention was to surpass the speed of sound.
It is curious that this landing took place in the precise year of the death of Neil Armstrong, the American astronaut who became the first man to step on the Moon in 1969. The paths that made them stand out were opposed. For both, the value of abandoning the Earth was different, just as was different the impact of returning to it.
