Stratex World Record-Breaking Flight

In 2014, the StratEx team, led by Space Perspective Co-CEOs Taber MacCallum and Jane Poynter, launched Alan Eustace to 136,000 feet in a spacesuit under a SpaceBalloon, breaking the Red Bull Stratos record for the highest spacedive and highest human flight under a SpaceBalloon. Many of the crew responsible for this successful flight are currently in key roles at Space Perspective. The spacesuit the StratEx team developed, and in which Alan flew, is on permanent exhibit at the Smithsonian.
