Video: High Altitude Acrobatic Skydiving above Mont Blanc

Red Bull recently released a video of an amazing skydive carried out 10,000 meters (32,808 feet) above Mont Blanc, which is located in the Graian Alps mountain range between Aosta Valley, Italy and Haute-Savoie, France.

Fred Fugen and Vince Reffet teamed up for the stunt that took them to the edge of the atmosphere—representing the limit before skydivers must wear a pressurized suit. While they were able to go without the suits, both had to wear specially-designed oxygen systems, as they jumped into -50°C (-58°F) temperatures.

Even more impressive is that the duo took the opportunity to carry out very detailed acrobatics during the jump. Check out the video below:
