Austrian Daredevil and Freefall World Record Holder
Felix Baumgartner is a skydiver and BASE jumper. Nicknamed "Fearless Felix" and "God of the skies", he made history in 2012 by breaking the world record for the highest-ever skydive, jumping from a balloon more than 39km (128,000 ft) up in the stratosphere and became the first person to break the speed of sound in freefall.
"Sometimes you have to go up really high to understand how small you are"Add to my shortlist
Felix began skydiving aged 16, polishing his aero-acrobatic skills in the Austrian military's demonstration and competition team. In the 1990s, he moved from traditional skydiving to Base jumping, leaping off fixed objects and using a parachute to break the fall. He has completed many incredible feats in his BASE jumping career, broke two other world records (highest freefall and highest manned balloon flight) to complete his most daring mission to date. Felix's other ambition was to become a helicopter pilot. He has been flying commercial helicopters after getting his licence in the US and has done extreme, charity and rescue flights. Felix has also developed his own personal humanitarian project: FLY 4 LIFE.

He is also spurred on by the desire to see what no-one else has seen, to be alone at the highest reaches of the skies. Drawing upon his own personal experiences he inspires and challenges audiences to achieve goals beyond their wildest dreams.
