Re: Felix Baumgartner did not break the sound barrier!
OP is a moran who doesn't know the sound barrier is variable depending on height.

Height and Density of atmosphere

Not height. Only density of matter (speed of sound is higher in water than in air). Speed of sound is lower when air density is lower.

period. sound barrier is 1234,8 Km/h or 768 mph. He was under that.

He did break the sound barrier twice you ignorant piece of shit.

Re: Felix Baumgartner did not break the sound barrier!
Just curious ...
Why was there no visual, like has been see in other circumstances where there is an arc like presence when the 'sound barrier' is broken?
Why was there no audio recorded 'boom' during the free fall?
...and if what others are saying, regarding the difference in air, would 'sound' not travel faster in such an atmosphere were there is MUCH LESS RESISTANCE?
I'm not saying either way it was all real, or cgi or anything, I am just curious in the conversation.

Anyone who could explain these things in laymans terms and at the end still sound resonable?

Appreciated.

The mach disk materialization depends on the local air moisture content. It's just water vapor condensing under the effect of a local sudden pressure rise (the shock wave). If the air is perfectly dry, not visual. I don't know of the physical properties of the atmospheric layer at the elevation he supposedly broke the sound barrier.

The lack of sonic boom is suspicious. Felix would have traveled faster than the boom first, but the sound wave should have eventually caught up with him as he slowed down. And nobody heard any boom on the ground either. May have been dissipated due to the high altitude and due to the fact that the body generating the shock wave was relatively small (compared to a plane)

Sound velocity is a function of air pressure AND temperature which are both a function of elevation. Check Wikipedia.

I am myself not convinced he did break Mach 1, because of several contradictory published information, and some number just don't make sense. But I would like to see all the fall data published. The problem is that those published data are controlled by Red Bull. I don't think there was an independent body making accurate velocity measurement there at the time. So Red Bull could easily release BS data supporting a false claim because the whole thing, after all, is only aimed at marketing. And breaking a sound barrier sounds too good to let it pass by by a few miles/h.

That's based on what you saw on the screen. Only the sensors in his suit will tell the final story...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25546722


fuck his suit. not even had a head cam in it. and no he didnt break it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25536726


Seriously, dude. You don't know what you are talking about:

"The speed of sound varies inversely with the square root of the density of the medium through which it travels.As the density of air changes with altitude the speed of sound also changes."
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25554973


Hmmm a logarithmic equation.

OP did you factor in the density of the air when Baumgartner
hit his top speed?....

He was over that. 843 mph.
