Did You Know?
[on whether he would have jumped with only a 50% chance he would survive] Never. If I do something,it's always 90% obvious and 10% unknown. Fifty-fifty means you get the same chance to die as to survive. I'd never work that way. That would be stupid.
Baumgartner set the world record for the lowest BASE jump ever, from the hand of the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro.
