They faked it

This isn't anymore real than any other soap commercials.

Look at the letters ZENIT in these screen grabs:



The video cannot possibly be real.

Case closed. Fake fake fake.

what?! How can you possibly conclude this?


"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?



Click "view full size image" - and compare with YT frame:


The letters ZENIT doesn't add up, different yellow label on helmet. These two photos cannot possibly be from the same event.

There are much more nonsense in this story, but this example should be easy to grasp.

Joη's picture

it's almost as if they're from two different events..& they are!

first link's image caption:

Pilot Felix Baumgartner of Austria seen before his jump at the first manned test flight for Red Bull Stratos in Roswell, New Mexico on March 15, 2012.

second (front page) link's caption: none. Reverse image searching reveals many more instances of that image. Looking on msnbc, the photo is in the "Related Photos" section, captioned with:

Pilot Felix Baumgartner of Austria exits his capsule as he begins his record-setting skydive over Roswell, New Mexico October 14, 2012 in this frame capture from handout video. Baumgartner broke a 52-year-old record by skydiving from 23 miles.

Here's the photo on Gizmodo, in the same time frame.

Realize this is equivalently your logic:

Look! This photo is different from all the others! Therefore [insert monumentally implausible conclusion].

What possible motive is there to fake this event? And all the footage? The live feed? You're saying whatever dire straits this group's advertising was in (that's the only reason I can think anyone would want to do this), it was easier to fake the construction of all of it and further risk ruination by perpetrating some colossally pointless lie upon the public than actually do something that various teams have worked a great deal to assure was possible, safe, and effected correctly?

I mean, at least in your (still patently false) context of thinking all 9/11 footage was faked frame by frame by the media, one could point at the outline of the "big bad missing but powerful variable" that caused it all for various political reasons. Here, very literally none of that is possible.

This is ludicrous. I'm not even going to continue arguing it.

Could be from two different events

Wasn't aware if this allegedly test in Mars. Have to revert.

Ok, I can see the word "ZENITH" does not match...

...on the panels on the pod in the two pictures. Also, the pod in one picture is skinny and the one in the other picture is wide.

On skinny pod, the word "ZENITH" is written across two panels, with the "Z" being on the panel by the opening. On the wider pod, the word "ZENITH" is contained on one panel, with no letters overlapping onto the left panel by the opening.

I have not followed this event. You say there is much more nonsense in this story. What are you referring to?

more nonsense

The platform hardly moves when he jumped. A barrel hanging in a wire should have moved considerably if a man jumped of the edge of it.

Launch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHtvDA0W34

0:22 - no people behind the crane
0:23 - cheerleaders behind the crane and crane in front of the module

They even put the word BULL in red letters on his pants leg!

What fools do they take us for?!?1/1?!/!?1?

Actually one of those pictures seems to be the one on this page:
for which the caption is: Felix Baumgartner, stepping into the void from 71,580 feet during a test jump in March. The Austrian adventurer plans a record-setting jump from 120,000 feet on Tuesday. Photo: Jay Nemeth/Red Bull Content Pool

Now that I look more closely even the space.com link posted above says in its caption: Pilot Felix Baumgartner of Austria seen before his jump at the first manned test flight for Red Bull Stratos in Roswell, New Mexico on March 15, 2012. The actual jump, of course, was in October not March.

Different day, different jump.

You have my interest!


If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

How do we know that this was real?


Congratulations Felix !!


I bet those last 5 minutes before he jumped must have felt like hours for his family.

Nevertheless, great successful and safe accomplishment




And all privately funded. I can't wait for the space hotels, lunar vacations and Martian homesteading to come!

24.5 miles now

He's beyond the 23..........
