[i]"One of the things that has allowed us to gather the experts we have, and work with the level of people we’re working with, is that they perceive us to be very serious about what we do. It’s definitely not a stunt."[/i]
[i]"The objective is science. You don't go into a situation like this to set a record. You go in to get knowledge."
"I think all of us are dedicated toward the science, and none of us would be involved if this was a stunt."[/i]
[i]"The scientific data that we have collected with the Red Bull Stratos project include Felix’s complete biometric values, subsonic to transonic to supersonic and back again. These data are of interest to medical practitioners and will help to develop future treatments for accidents in the supersonic range. The load values of suit, helmet, gloves, and parachute will make equipment safer in the future. We are the first to collate such data."
"The U.S. Air Force, NASA, and private companies have already asked if they can have access to our data. They are all interested in what happens when you exit at such high altitudes. It will take some time to analyze the data from the flat spin and to deduce an exact pattern of how people with less skydiving experience than Felix can survive a fall from such a great height."[/i]
