On October 14, 2012, veteran parachutist Felix Baumgartner made a record-breaking jump from a balloon gondola 39,045 meters (128, 100 feet) above Roswell, New Mexico. Join Baumgartner, previous high-altitude descent record-holder Joseph Kittinger, and technical project director Art Thompson for their thrilling first-person accounts of the team effort leading to Baumgartner’s dramatic jump.

Joe Kittinger will be signing his book, Come Up and Get Me: An Autobiography of Colonel Joe Kittinger, after the lecture.

The GE Aviation Lecture Series is made possible by the generous support of GE Aviation.
