Red Bull Stratos

Project Summary

Red Bull Stratos, a mission to the edge of space, took renowned athlete Felix Baumgartner to 120,000 feet above the earth in a stratospheric balloon, where he transcended human limits that have existed for 50 years.

Viewers could tune in from the Stratos Facebook Page and watch the feat streaming live while monitoring every stat and equipment reading real-time. A custom Facebook Event widget was also developed to allow users to RSVP to the streaming event outside of Facebook. Developed while under employment of Archrival.
