Felix Baumgartner is coming to Kuwait and you can own a small part of history

Posted by Mark

Felix Baumgartner who became the first human to break the sound barrier without vehicular power is coming to Kuwait next week. Among the activities he’ll be taking part in there will be a meet and greet with fans at 360 Mall. Here are the details:

Date: Wednesday, 11th December 2013
Time: 7:00PM
Location: 360 Mall

Now Red Bull will also let you win a small part of history. The original Red Bull Stratos helium balloon was cut up into small pieces and turned into a small souvenir. There are 1,500 limited editions of this souvenir which is pictured above. If you’d like a chance to win this souvenir as well as meet and have your photo taken with Felix Baumgartner, then leave a comment below. Sunday night I’m going to close the comments and randomly choose a winner. Good luck!

Rules: Only one entry per person and please make sure you use a working email since the winner will be contacted by email. If winner doesn’t respond within 12 hours another winner will be randomly chosen.

Update: I closed the comments and using random.org, the winner of this contest is #52, “Aziz mma”. Check your email.

    wow, love to see the legend in person.

  11. A.Albaz says:

    Some people certainly have some strange talents. Going all the way to space in order to free fall must be fantastic! I always wished to see earth from space, and this person did it by jumping all the way from total darkness, with the moon and earth surrounding him. I wonder if he was able to see the other planets. I am a big fan or dare devils, and this man should be nick-named, the human satellite.
    Cheers everybody

    • Shakespeare says:

      I applaud your enthusiasm, but the rest is utter stupidity. No, you can’t see other planets from there, and he didn’t jump from space as such, because he was still technically in the very last layer of earth’s atmosphere.

  119. Aida says:

    ‘Felix’= ‘lucky,’ in Latin. He has honored his name in the true sense by beating sound in the race back home.

  120. Ankit says:

    Being a champion begins in your mind, beats through your heart and ends in the inspiration you create for the world around you. Be brave enough to pursue your dreams.

    Felix’s achievement fits the self created quote above. I hope I get selected. Would be great. Cheers.
