Summary In 2012, Australian skydiver Felix Baumgartner set the world record for highest-altitude free-fall. In 2014, his record was broken by Alan Eustace, a mild-mannered 56-year-old Google engineer who jumped from a helium balloon in the stratosphere, nearly 26 miles above the Earth. Working in utmost secrecy with engineers and scientists over three years, Alan and his small team achieved what no one had before: the creation of a new spacecraft that could provide a lightweight and safer way to explore 30 miles into space. The road to the stars was paved with engineering challenges, incredible obstacles, and near-death experiences, all chronicled in this inspiring, nail-biting, hair-raising documentary.
