With breathtaking footage of the jump itself, viewers will be able to share in Felix's experience every step of the way: launching from the New Mexico desert; climbing 24 miles in a space capsule suspended below a 55-story helium balloon; stepping out at 128,100 feet to see the curvature of the earth; and finally free-falling through the stratosphere at over 700 mph, exceeding the speed of sound with his own body.

Space Dive is a co-production between the BBC, Red Bull Media House and National Geographic Channel. For BBC, Gary Hunter is the executive producer. For National Geographic Channel, Richard J. Wells is the Executive Producer, Charlie Parsons, the Vice President in Charge of Production/Development; the Executive in Charge of Production is Michael Cascio.
