This is a youtube video of the highlights of the Red Bull space jump, it is 1:21 minutes long. To initiate driving questions for a unit on forces, students might ask: Why did Felix have to wear a spacesuit for the jump? How long was Felix falling? Why did Felix use a balloon instead of an airplane? How large was the force of air resistance acting on Felix? Was the force acting on Felix constant throughout the jump?
