MS5561C Altimeter Pressure Sensor Completes 24 Mile Skydive

Felix Baumgartner recently set a world record for skydiving. Jumping out of a helium balloon from a height of 24 miles, he landed ten minutes later after free falling at speeds up to 834.4 mph for about 4 minutes and then parachuting to the ground. This project was sponsored by Red Bull, an energy drink sold by the Austrian company Red Bull GmbH. Strapped to Mr. Baumgartner's left arm of his...
