Jumping from the space ~ ANGOL Szövegértés

Rövid cikk Felix Baumgartner ugrásáról szókincslistával, újrakezdő, középhaladó szinten. A Feladattárban találtok hozzá kiegészítő feladatsort, és hanganyagot is.

Felix Baumgartner, 43, from Austria has become the first person to fall faster than the speed of sound – more than 1,000 kilometres per hour. He jumped from a tiny capsule over 39km above the Earth. The project leader told Baumgartner before he leapt: "Start the cameras, and our guardian angel will take care of you." The skydiver replied: "I know the whole world is watching now. I wish you could see what I can see. Sometimes you have to be up really high to understand how small you are."

It took Baumgartner ten minutes to reach the ground. His fastest speed was 1,342kph. After the Austrian landed, he fell to his knees, raised his fists and waited for the helicopter to take him back to his team. He told reporters at a press conference: "When I was standing there on top of the world, you become so humble. You don't think about breaking records…the only thing that you want is to come back alive." In 2003, Baumgartner glided across the English Channel from England to France under a carbon fibre wing.
